1,500 retina specialists attend 8th EURETINA Congress in Vienna, Austria

More than 1,500 delegates have registered to attend the 8th EURETINA Congress in Vienna.

Over the past years EURETINA has grown and expanded its activities. Attendance at the annual congress is increasing each year with 973 delegates from 63 countries attending the 2007 EURETINA Congress in Monte Carlo.

The increase in the number of delegates at the 2008 Congress reflects the growing importance of EURETINA as an organisation but also the strength of the scientific programme at the Congress.

The European Society of Retina Specialists (EURETINA) is an organisation comprising clinicians, scientists and researchers interested in treating macular and vitreoretinal diseases. It was founded as a non-profit organisation in 2000.

Over the next few days, the EuroTimes weblog will feature some of the highlights from the programme and some of the messages from the key speakers attending the congress.

We welcome the views and opinions of EuroTimes readers and delegates attending this year's congress, so please feel free to comment on any matter of interest to you.

Jose Cunha-Vaz

EURETINA president
