The 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology (COPHy) Catalonia Palace of Congresses, Barcelona, Spain, March 3-6, 2011
Dear Friends and Colleagues
Following the success of the 1st COPHy Congress in Prague, Czech Republic with over 500 participants, we are happy to announce the 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology (COPHy).
Over the years, the field of ophthalmology has undergone an enormous expansion in clinical trials and basic research as well as in cutting-edge technology. New developments in the management of a variety of ophthalmic diseases, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, vascular occlusive disease, and the development of novel technologies in cataract, refractive surgery, glaucoma and vitreous surgery have increased exponentially,. The fields of dry eye, refractive surgery, oculoplastics, advances in IOLs, as well as ethical and socioeconomic issues also have contributed to the need to debate many controversial issues which come up in clinical situations each and every day.
The COPHy Congress is intended as an exclusive forum for international experts to share and compare experiences in order to outline the potentially best treatments for patients within these controversial areas.
Participants will have the advantage of discussing and debating these unresolved issues with leading world experts in all fields of ophthalmology. The Congress aims to reach the best answers currently possible and provide the clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific solutions, based on the best existing evidence.
We invite you to take part in the 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology and look forward to an exciting event in the beautiful city of Barcelona.
