Sunday May 5, 2013

Session #156

1:00:00 PM – 2:30:00 PM Room TCC 303

  “Understanding the role biofilm and infections in keratoprosthesis”


The aim of this SIG is to discuss different aspects of biofilm formation as a key in infections and surface material selection in the context of keratoprosthesis.  Incorporating aspects of surface and tissue imaging and detection of biofilm will help identify the three facets that might affect biointegration in keratoprosthesis: chemical, mechanical and biological sources.


Deborah Sweeney

Opening comments (4 min): The evolution of KPros and infections

Michael Belin

Panel Discussion (12 min):  Biofilm in keratoprosthesis, infection or inflammation Relations between biofilm and infection

Darlene Miller

2010 meeting Sept 16-20 in Beijing

October 16, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The APAO (Asia Pacific Assoc of Ophthalmology) will hold its 2010 meeting Sept 16-20 in Beijing, China. They expect over 5,000 participants. Last year’s meeting in Bali, was both highly successful and enjoyable.

There will be a dedicated 90 minute symposium on Keratoprosthesis. This will cover all forms of KPro. I, Michael W Belin, will chair and organize the symposium. We typically have 8-9 speakers. The APAO has in the past waived all registration for speakers, but travel and hotel are left up to the individual.

If any one would be interested in speaking I would ask that they forward me their contact information and at least two possible titles.

Additionally, there are many other Cornea / External Disease sessions, so if anyone has other topics they may want to talk on please let me know and I can forward these to the proper individual.

Please contact me via email at

Biocompatibility and Keratoprosthesis

The main object of this meeting will be to review progress of the various keratoprothesis currently being used, look at the development of new devices and gain new knowledge in the area of biocompatibility of keratoprosthesis and how it may be enhanced/improved.  Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding corneal stromal interactions.
