The 3rd Asia-Australia Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology (COPHy AA)

Location:

Date: February 09 - 12, 2017

The great success of previous COPHy Congresses held in various countries in Europe paved the way for the locally orientated COPHy Congress – called COPHy AA – which has triumphantly taken place in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 2015 and Bangkok, Thailand, 2016.

COPHy AA
 in Seoul again will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2016 and 2017 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to discuss controversies in Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, as well as other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis. Topics will include the treatment of retinal diseases such as diabetic macular edema, the role of anti-VEGF agents versus panretinal photocoagulation in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, pathologic myopia, the current management of corneal disease with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, as well as novel medical and surgical glaucoma issues.

Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when data remain limited, through evidence-based medicine, including expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts.

The 3rd Asia - Australia COPHy Congress will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of diagnostics, distinctive responses to treatments and typical complications. Many of the Faculty members will be local in order to discuss these typical regional problems.

We invite you to participate in the 3rd Asia Australia COPHy Congress in South Korea.
