Dear Colleagues,

Aravind Eye Hospital is honoured to welcome you to its popular biennial 7th Symposium on Diabetic Retinopathy. This year it is being cohosted by the other 3 major eye institutes of South India - Sankara Nethralaya, LVPEI and Narayana Nethralaya.

In today’s world, there are several exciting developments taking place rapidly in the management of diabetic retinopathy. There is a Paradigm shift in the management of retinopathy from Lasers to a whole gamut of Pharmacotherapy. You will be hearing directly from the very people doing the cutting edge research. The eminent faculty members from leading research centres in USA, UK & Singapore will share their views on current developments and future trends in this field. This meeting will focus onlyon diabetic retinopathy discussing from the basic of DR to the treatments that are out in the horizon.

With the advent of Pharmacotherapy, even the general ophthalmologists are treating DR and so it becomes all the more important for every ophthalmologist to learn all aspects of DR management.

We invite you to join us, in this prestigious symposium that promises to be stimulating and rewarding for all participants.
