On March 17, 2012, a course in Advanced Cataract Surgery was held at the Marriott Newport Beach Hotel and Spa. Dr. Jonathan Davidorf, a clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology of UCLA, Jules Stein Eye Institute, contributed to the program by instructing residents, fellows and invited members of the ophthalmic community how to successfully perform complex cataract procedures.

The 100 participants came from UCLA, USC, UCI, UCSD, the Naval Medical Center, Loma Linda, Kaiser Permanente, and several private ophthalmology practices. The event sponsor was Bausch and Lomb. A similar course for Basic Cataract Surgery will be held in the Fall.
