Retina International Website Re-development

The Retina International website is currently under re-development and while the original site is still functional, there may be some delays in updating the website’s content. The new website will launch in early Summer and will provide you with the most recent and relevant information about ongoing retinal research, treatments, healthy lifestyle habits and upcoming global events to ensure the best possible user experience. Thank you for your cooperation and if you have any suggestions for our new website, please contact sean.heagney@retina-international.org.

Retina International World Congress 2020

The Retina International World Congress (RIWC) scheduled for 4-6 June 2020 in Reykjavík, Iceland is under consideration given the global situation and all updates relating to changes in the original schedule will be announced here and on our multiple social media platforms. In these circumstances, your health and safety is our top priority and we are working to ensure that all necessary measures are in place for this purpose. Thank you for your patience and stay safe!
