Exceptional testimonies

The event will feature a live surgery session on 7 June, in which eight procedures will be performed in four of IMO's operating theatres. The operations will be screened in IMO’s auditorium, from where the audience will be able to listen to explanations given by the surgeons in theatre and have the opportunity to ask questions and offer their appraisals. This session will be of particular interest to young ophthalmologists, who will have the chance to observe, at first hand, the techniques used by the prestigious team of retinologists participating in the event.
