Where has Dr. Grabow been...and where is he going? (Better Vision News: Advertising Feature).

Dr. Harry B. Grabow, medical director of Sarasota Cataract & Laser Institute, receives invitations to lecture all over the world. Manufacturers of surgical instruments ask for his opinion on new designs and system improvements. Additionally, he writes articles and textbooks, and teaches cataract surgical techniques both here and abroad, while maintaining the Sarasota practice he established in 1976.

Most recently, h is travels took him to New Orleans and Philadelphia for the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) annual conferences. In New Orleans he conducted lectures about new and emerging surgical advances and led laboratory sessions for attendees.

He has also contributed chapters to two textbooks published this year. Dr. Grabow continues to manage a full-time surgical practice while offering his knowledge and assistance for the benefit of other doctors because, in his words, "My misison is to provide excellence and to evolve the technology, which is why I participate in national and global research and education. I personally find both exciting and inspiring. Therefore, work is never work for me."

During the ASCRS conference, Dr. Grabow joined a panel of other world-renowned surgeons for an advanced discussion of complex case studies and surgical management issues, and participated as a trainer during a hands-on work-shop for new physicians.

Nearly 37 percent of all visits to doctors' offices for eye care are made by persons 65 years of age and older.
