On the 25th of September 2020 we will run our first virtual symposium - Emergency Eye Care and the ‘New Normal’.
Showcasing innovation, accomplishments and discussion about overcoming challenges of delivering emergency eye care in 2020.

It may cover innovations or inventions you have used to manage social distancing, triage, virtual examination and service reconfiguration that you would like to share with the wider emergency ophthalmology community.
