Retina World Congress is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating retina specialists on advances in the field. RWC's main initiative is its biennial meeting, where it brings together retina societies from around the world to support global scientific and clinical exchange on advances in retina health.

The inaugural meeting brought together 1,000+ attendees from 32 US states, 74 countries and 38 retina societies around the globe. Leading retina specialists connected with colleagues and industry partners for four days of education and discussion at the world’s first truly international retina congress.

In 2019, we unite again to share research, ideas and innovations in an educational forum. Join us in support of scientific and clinical exchange on advances in retinal health. Take this unique opportunity to establish scientific partnerships and form friendships across borders and oceans.

Join 1,000+ retina experts from around the world!
