  • Location Online
  • Organised by Ophthalmology

Join us for an evening symposium delivered by national experts which will provide a comprehensive update on the role of personalised genomic medicine in paediatric ophthalmology in 2023. The meeting will specifically outline diagnosis and surgical management of three areas of paediatric ophthalmic disease including, corneal and lens disorders and retinal gene therapy. 

The purpose of this meeting is to provide attendees with an update on the role of genetic medicine and modern surgical treatment in the diagnosis and management of paediatric ophthalmic disorders. 

Benefits of attending:

  • At the end of the symposium attendees will have an enhanced knowledge and understanding of the important role of modern genomics in the management of children with inherited eye disease.
  • Learn about diagnosis and management of conditions causing lens luxation and corneal opacification in children.
  • Attendees will be provided with an update on the retinal and ocular disorders amenable to gene therapy and the techniques used to deliver treatment.

Attendees will learn through lectures and have the opportunity to participate in an interactive question and answer sessions.
