Seating is limited, so register early for best selection.

    Although the scope of the meeting can seem large and intimidating, the ability to navigate the meeting content and the location of exhibits and sessions is greatly enhanced by the use of the Mobile Meeting Guide, said Dr. Rubenstein.

    “This smart phone app has proven to be invaluable to me. There is no other ophthalmology meeting in the world that provides the wide breadth of content and the ability to meet and interact with local and international colleagues. I am really looking forward to this year's meeting and I hope to see my many friends and colleagues from around the world there,” he said.
