47th Trends in Ophthalmology

Friday 4th February 2022 (virtual meeting)

Unfortunately due to escalating COVID-19 infections and new restrictions, the trustees & organisers of Eyehope have taken the difficult decision to change the forthcoming 47th Trends in Ophthalmology meeting to a one-day virtual meeting instead of the planned two-day F2F one. Please see the revised programme below.

Registrations for this meeting will be via Eventbrite. We will be charging a £30 donation towards our Eyehope charity which supports ophthalmic research, education and training.
