A think tank for the most progressive glaucoma specialists.

The Interventional Glaucoma Consortium (IGC) will be returning to Salt Lake City in 2023, bringing together the top thought leaders in the interventional glaucoma space and offering a dedicated program for glaucoma fellows in partnership with Moran Eye Center. Curated by Program Chairs Drs. Ike Ahmed, Rick Lewis, Arsham Sheybani, and Rachel Simpson, the IGC's think tank–style format will encourage a select group of leading glaucoma specialists to exchange innovative ideas and education that promotes a proactive, not reactive, approach to patient care.
