Manchester Royal Eye Hospital Bicentenary Conference a great success

Manchester Royal Eye Hospital has marked its Bicentenary year with a hugely successful academic conference.

Over 400 participated, travelling from 23 countries, including those as far-flung as New Zealand, to hear from prestigious international speakers about the latest clinical and research developments.

There were 125 invited speakers covering a range of topics including paediatric ophthalmology, glaucoma, uveitis, retinal disease and ophthalmic imaging.

Mr Nicholas Jones, consultant ophthalmologist and lead organiser of the conference, said:

"The feedback we have had from the conference has been overwhelmingly positive. In addition to showcasing the leading clinical and research work performed at MREH, many prestigious invited speakers, including MREH alumni, gave excellent lectures.  There were 128 free papers and posters submitted to a conference which will be memorable not only because of its scientific quality, but also because of its friendly atmosphere and important occasion."

The next event to mark the bicentenary will be an Open Day on October 21st, when the Eye Hospital will open its doors to the public for exclusive tours of one of the world's great eye hospitals.
