ASCRS Glaucoma Day

Dr. Jacobson, M.D. attended the 2015 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) conference, focusing on medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma. At the conference, he was able to talk with other leading glaucoma and cataract surgeons from around the country about the latest in surgical interventions, and medical therapy.  This valuable educational experience helps maintain Dr. Jacobson’s expertise and interest in the field of glaucoma.
