Countdown on to the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Bicentenary Conference

Next week Manchester Conference Centre will be filled with academics, professionals and leading ophthalmologists from across the world as part of the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Bicentenary.

The event will be held between 24-27 June and the list of confirmed speakers is fast approaching one hundred. This includes MREH and University of Manchester staff, and prestigious external speakers.

Over the four day event visitors will hear talks on a range of topics including paediatric ophthalmology, advances in glaucoma, uveitis and the history of ophthalmology and medicine in Manchester.

In addition to this there will be a conference reception and dinner at the Manchester Town Hall on the Thursday evening, and prizes for posters and presentations completed by delegates.

Mr Nicholas Jones, Consultant Ophthalmologist and Chair of the 1814 Committee said:

"We hope that those who attend the conference enjoy hearing from the wealth of experience speaking at the event. We also look forward to sharing our pride in our hospital, one of the world's premier speciality eye hospitals and the second largest of its kind in Europe, and we hope our guests gain a lot from this experience."
