*Registration will open on April 15*
Our program will kick off with hot topics in the Retina space and a presentation on novel endpoints will follow.
There will be several ophthalmic companies presenting their latest clinical data and two lively panel discussions: one clinical and
one industry-focused. Throughout the event you will have the ability to ask questions and network with other participants in real time.
