2016 Macula Society 39th Annual Meeting

Miami, FL US
February 24, 2016 to February 27, 2016

This educational activity is designed to improve patient care and to promote innovative research to push the field forward through reporting of the latest findings from multi-center clinical trials, discussion of investigator initiated studies, and the sharing of the cutting-edge research findings among the Macula Society members and guests.

The Macula Society was founded in 1977 as a society for vitreoretinal physicians, surgeons and researchers to gather, learn, and discuss the new frontiers in retinal surgery, clinical care and treatment and research studies. Annual meetings of the Macula Society provide a forum for reporting on the most innovative research, clinical experience and the latest clinical trial findings in the areas of retinal, macular and vitreous diseases and surgery, and for spirited discussions about new and possibly controversial treatment modalities.
