Attendance is open to all retina specialists and any other healthcare providers who are interested in participating in a global scientific and clinical exchange on advances in retinal health.

Program Summary

Retina World Congress is a non-profit organization dedicated to uniting international professionals to foster dialogue and to generate consensus about retinal diseases, emerging technologies and treatments, best practices and clinical research. The belief is that we can foster more collaboration between national and regional retinal societies, providing a single focal point of information exchange for the global retina community. Our annual meeting offers attendees an extraordinary program created by and for retina specialists from around the globe and successfully brings together 100+ faculty and hundreds of attendees from 35+ U.S. states, 50+ countries and 40+ international retina societies.

Learning Objectives: General Sessions

Upon completion of this activity, attendees will have better knowledge of the following subject matters:

  • Review the latest evidence, clinical trial data, and treatment options for various retinal disorders and inherited retinal diseases.
