Organised by The RSM Ophthalmology Section in association with The History of Medicine Society

This unique, entertaining and educational meeting showcases the Ophthalmic heritage collection and British contributions that have influenced modern ophthalmology globally. Speakers will highlight important lessons from the past that have shaped the present and which will ignite new ideas for the future of training, clinical services, and infectious disease management.

Lessons learnt within this special event will be particularly relevant in a pandemic era of great change and adaptation.

Aims of this meeting include:

  • Promote an appreciation for the documentation and preservation of ophthalmic heritage.

  • Acknowledge how it shapes present day training, clinical practice and future blindness prevention.

  • Value the importance of history in allowing one to maintain a healthy scepticism of today's perceived truths.

  • Learn from previous failures and successes to encourage new developments for the future.
