Join us for this valuable meeting which provides an excellent opportunity for members of the ophthalmology community and of all grades to hear detailed and insightful recent research presentations from junior doctors. Students and trainees will present their research from multiple subspecialties and receive a critical review and feedback on their work.

The event is a perfect opportunity for participants to hear a broad range of topics that have been well researched by up-and-coming ophthalmologists. 

The Ophthalmology Section: Students and Trainees Prize will also be presented and awarded during the meeting.
