The Retina Conference is an annual event organised by Irish patient-led charity Fighting Blindness. Retina 2020 brings together top international and Irish researchers and clinicians in the global effort to find treatments and cures for conditions causing vision impairment and blindness.
In response to Covid-19, Fighting Blindness has developed a virtual experience for Retina 2020. This virtual meeting will take place on Friday 6 November with a stream of live and pre-recorded adapted presentations, which will be available on demand after the event.
To ensure a true Retina conference experience, we aim to deliver the highest quality content presented by world-renowned experts in the field of retina and a forum for researchers at all stages of their careers to exchange ideas and knowledge.
