- 13th International AMD and Retina Conference
ESASO, the European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology, will hold the 13th International AMD and Retina Conference in Dublin’s Convention Centre on the 25th and 26th October. Incoming College President Marie Hickey Dwyer is Co-Chair of the meeting’s Scientific Committee.
This key scientific gathering examines research, prevention and therapy of retinal diseases, with a particular emphasis on age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Disorders of the macula in the retina are an issue of pressing importance; 25 to 30 million people worldwide suffer from this affliction, and every year half a million new cases are diagnosed.
The annual conference has demonstrated how international collaboration and exchange among ophthalmologists can facilitate therapeutic advancements. More than 1000 delegates from all over the world are expected to attend the 2013 meeting which feature plenary presentations, case studies and meet-the-experts sessions. Panel discussions and a poster exhibition are also included in the programme.
Based in Lugano, Switzerland, the ESASO Foundation was founded in 2008 and is the European centre of competence for postgraduate studies in ophthalmology. Its congress is a forum for comprehensive know-how transfer and disseminating the latest findings from the International Fellowship to the specialist community.
The School’s activities cover all subspecialties such as medical and surgical retina, cornea and refractive, cataract, glaucoma, uveitis, oculoplasty, pediatry and strabismus.
