Chaired by Prof. Vincenzo Ferrara, Prof. Kazuaki Kadonosono and Prof. Zhizhong Ma, the symposium extends the discussions to surgery intervention for PCV against anti-VEGF medication, 3D techniques in vitreoretinal surgery, treatment of retinal detachment in abnormal optic disc, novel tools for subretinal gene therapy, and a comprehensive study on lamellar macular hole.

Retinal Imaging in the Future

Imaging has become an integral part of the management of many retinal conditions. Yet, many imaging modalities currently in research are making rapid progress and are expected to be incorporated into mainstream clinical use in the near future. This symposium will introduce some of the most promising retinal imaging developments that are likely to impact the day-to-day practice in the next 5 years.
