About the Hustead Memorial Lecture: Dr. Ken Nischal
We are pleased to welcome Ken Nischal, MD, FAAP, FRCOphth. Dr. Nischal is chief of the Division of Pediatric Opthalmology and Strabismus at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, director of pediatric program development at the UPMC Eye Center, and professor of ophthalmology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Dr. Nischal has pioneered the use of new surgical techniques, previously used only in adults, in children with corneal disorders. One of these techniques, deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), involves removing the patient’s cornea except for a membrane just 1/100th of a millimeter thick and transplanting a healthy cornea on top of the membrane. This technique may be more resistant to eye trauma than a conventional corneal transplant, he says. For this reason, DALK may provide better results in children whose corneas are damaged by progressive neurometabolic diseases and who may also have an elevated risk for eye trauma.
The Hustead Memorial Lecture will focus on What Do I Need from Anesthesia For My Pediatric Anterior Segment Patients and we are looking forward to it!

Bite of Baltimore: Meet other members during this tasty tour!
Welcome to Baltimore! As a special offering for OAS attendees, an evening food tour will be offered in the Mt. Vernon Historic Mid-Town neighborhood of Baltimore. The neighborhood best represents the “Gilded Age” of the city, and we can showcase prominent architecture and history as we stroll approximately 1.5 miles through the city. As we walk, we’ll have a progressive dinner that highlights the multicultural elements of the area, and showcases the wonderful food in the neighborhood. The progressive dinner will include food at 3 restaurants in the neighborhood, as well as guided historical and cultural tour! As the area is the epicenter of growth for Baltimore during the 1800’s and into the 1900’s, we will be able to speak to everything from finance and railroads, to healthcare, and philanthropy. Special focus on Healthcare in Baltimore!
The Bite of Baltimore Tour will start at the hotel lobby at 5:45pm on Saturday, September 10 and you must sign up in advance. Come hungry – this will be a VERY filling meal! Our restaurants are a SURPRISE, but get ready to experience the very best of our foodie scene!
Cost is $95 per person + $9.50 = $104.50 total. Reserve your seat here.
