    Late Breaking Developments

    Submit a topic suggestion for the Late Breaking Developments section of the Retina Subspecialty Day program.

    The 2020 Retina Subspecialty Day Planning Group will accept suggestions until Aug. 18. After topics are reviewed, notifications will go out the week of Sept. 7.

    Mission Statement

    The 2020 Retina Subspecialty Day aims to provide a comprehensive and focused medical and surgical retina update for the retina subspecialist, interested ophthalmologist, and ophthalmologist in training. The meeting focuses on up-to-date, clinically and scientifically relevant retina topics presented by an international group of respected retina specialists. The major educational goals are to highlight new clinical, medical, and surgical advances and investigative information and to transfer it to the participant so that it is useful in patient care. The meeting attains these goals by engaging the participant in didactic presentations, case presentation, videos, panel discussions, audience response polling, and audience response question generation for moderated panels.

    The intended target audience for this program is vitreoretinal specialists, members in training, and general ophthalmologists who are engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of vitreoretinal diseases.
