eyeRISE 2021: Free Global Virtual Conference 10-11 February 2021 (ANZ Time Zone)

More than 40 speakers from 15 countries will share their expertise, experience and views at EyeRISE 2021, a free multi-disciplinary, virtual congress set to take place from 10-11 February (ANZ Time Zone).

The two day event will showcase the latest innovations in eye care and deliver clinical and practical education falling across the three “solutions-focused tracks” of:
• Building clinical confidence,
• Entering new markets: myopia and dry eye, and
• Too many patients, not enough time.
Each track will comprise a symposium, a roundtable discussion and an interactive workshop.
