Today is the final day of the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Bicentenary.

Delegates from 23 countries have attended the four day event at the Manchester Conference Centre, featuring nearly one hundred prestigious expert speakers.

We enjoy 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."
