The Bay Area Ophthalmology Course (formerly the Basic Science Course in Ophthalmology) has been offered to the vision community since 1970, presented by faculty from teaching programs and recognized experts from other institutions. The BAOC offers intensive instruction in the fundamental sciences underlying ophthalmic practice and research, including ophthalmic pathology, optics, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, pharmacology, orbit and oculoplastics, neuro-ophthalmology, corneal and refractive surgery, cataract surgery, glaucoma, pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, and retinal surgery.

Approximately six hours of instruction are offered each day, with corresponding handouts. The course provides a strong and practical basis for residents in ophthalmology and vision scientists, and a review and update for practicing ophthalmologists.
