The Retina Conference is an annual event organised by Irish patient-led charity Fighting Blindness. Retina 2021 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.
After the success of virtual Retina 2020, this year the Conference will again take place virtually, on Friday 5th of 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
