6th San Raffaele OCT & Retina Forum

6th San Raffaele OCT & Retina Forum
Be up to date and build your experience if you want to make the most from the potential of the new imaging technologies and to propose the best new treatments available. This will be one of the goals of the next edition of the San Raffaele OCT Forum: the integration of the new available technologies and treatments into the clinical practice, not only for the sake of research but mainly because they are crucial for retinal disease diagnosis and therapy. We will listen to the main opinion leaders: some of the most well-known international specialists will be in Milan, at the NHOW Hotel, Via Tortona, on April 3rd – 4th, 2020, discussing topics that nowadays involve all ophthalmologists in their practice: OCT, OCTA and ultra-widefield imaging, clinical trials, new drugs, and new laser treatments.
The congress program will include presentations on imaging, focus on therapies, updates on treatments for maculopathy, vascular and retinal diseases. In particular, some of the most important researchers will show the results of the last trials conducted in their clinical investigation centers.
The congress will be an opportunity also for young ophthalmologists. Professor Bandello and Professor Querques have designed a special session, based on the format of previous years: clinical – often challenging – case short presentations, where expert Speakers will give voice to residents and fellows. The patient is thus virtually “visited” by a panel of international experienced ophthalmologists, sharing diagnostic evaluations and discussing the most appropriate therapies.

Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science 2020

Second Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science Meeting
The Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science meeting is designed around the New Concepts in Glaucoma book series whose mission is to allow us to consolidate new information and hold forth on speculation in glaucoma. It does so in both the basic sciences and clinical sciences. It is our hope that this consolidation of hypotheses and theories, along with the identification of new information and new speculation will propel us toward a more rapid cure for glaucoma. The annual meeting will be built upon this mission by facilitating discussion/interaction and further dissemination of ideas and current research. Join an internationally acclaimed faculty in Amsterdam and improve your ability to treat glaucoma based on new research findings, medical and device developments.
