World Ophthalmology Congress, Hong Kong, China

12235_main_image_1 This past summer, the World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC) held its biannual meeting in Hong Kong and Drs. Pieramici and Castellarin were among the 1,000 invited speakers who represented more than 110 countries. Over 10,000 delegates attended the meeting which featured world leaders in ophthalmology sharing the latest research and surgical techniques. It was quite fitting that China, site of the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympic games, hosted the premier international ophthalmology congress. This year’s meeting featured over 330 scientific sessions including a vitreoretinal subspecialty day.
The topics were timely and cutting edge, including the talks on ocular injuries and trauma by Drs. Pieramici and Castellarin
