Controversies in ophthalmology

January 13, 2010

The full scientific programme for the March Congress is now available.

Macular surgery, whether to peel or not to peel the internal limiting membrane, surgical management of various macular pathologies, the effect of catarct on diabetic retinopathy and controversial cases in retinal detachment are just some of the headlines from the Scientific Programme of the World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology, which takes place in March in Prague.

The event is intended as forum for international experts to share and compare experiences in order to outline the potentially best treatments for patients within controversial areas. There is little available in the peer-reviewed literature on controversies in Ophthalmology, so there is a perceived need to enable an effective debate about unresolved issues, often resulting in agreed-upon answers supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinion.

Participants will have the advantage of discussing and debating these unresolved issues with leading world experts in all fields of Ophthalmology. The Congress aims to reach the best answers currently possible and provide the clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific solutions, based on the best existing evidence.

Members of OTEurope's Editorial Advisory Board will be chairing some of the debates.
