Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are pleased to announce and pleased to invite you to attend the 7th World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology (COPHy), which will take place in Warsaw, Poland, March 31-April 3, 2016.
The great success of the previous six COPHy Congresses, held across Europe in Prague, Barcelona, Istanbul, Budapest, Lisbon, and Sorrento, as well as the enthusiastic feedback received from the most recent Congresses confirmed the need for proceeding with the 7th edition of this dynamic Congress.
We are excited to disclose that COPHy Warsaw will again 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 issues raised during the course of 2015 and 2016 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to focus on Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, and will discuss controversies in 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, the current management of corneal disease with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, and novel medical and surgical glaucoma management methods will be discussed.
The Scientific Program will include overviews, state of the art lectures and controversial debates. Outstanding world leaders as faculty will present both pro and con positions while further challenging and exploring the optimal treatment for patients, with emphasis on the appropriate use of new and emerging drugs. This format includes a substantial allocation of time for interactive debates and questions from the audience to each panel of experts. Participants are encouraged to take an active role in the discussions with faculty members which follow each debate, in a unique and open environment.
We cordially invite you to register for the COPHy 2016 Congress in the historical city of Warsaw.
