World Eye and Vision Congress

Dubai, UAE   May 20-21, 2019

Eye Congress 2019

Theme: Breaking Barriers to End Vision Impairments

World Eye and Vision Congress is scheduled on May 20-21, at Dubai, UAE, to provide an opportunity to meet researchers, physicians from different subfields of ophthalmology and have a global overview of the latest progress on optometry research. The ophalmology conference is focus on new technologies to treat eye disorders to improve better vision for all. It facilitates an opportunity to exchange information, experiences and best practices by making together on one platform. Deliberating the world, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and retinal detachment are compelling matter.

Open presentation and discussion in the ophthalmology about on-going research, experiences and result quite significant toward the development of twenty first century technology, considering moreover the various worldwide intelligences gather together.

Why to Attend?

Dubai supports innovative and collaborative research, and explores to build a sustainable research and education programs primarily focusing on eye diseases. Through these activities, region’s best minds to focus on a new generation of scientific promise, while contributing to advances that cures the suffering caused by eye diseases.

Our eye and vision congress is designed to attract the best training, research, and health care practitioners to Dubai, the Gulf and Middle East region. The scope for research is broad, and will take full advantage of the extensive global network of expert faculty, researchers and educators.

Session1: Clinical and Surgical Ophthalmology

The global clinical and surgical ophthalmology market is expected to reach USD 35 billion by 2025, according to our new survey. The factors for growth of clinical and surgical ophthalmology are increase in funding by public and private bodies for doing research on ocular disorders with the support of strong emerging pipeline.

Session5: Retina and Cornea Disorders 

The global market is recorded as $24bn in 2018, dominated by the retinal disorder drugs segment. Around 10 million people in world suffering from corneal blindness. The growth of artificial cornea implant is the primary result of the rising incidences of corneal blindness and lack of availability of human cornea donors also responsible for the drastic growth of this market. Moreover, increasing incidences of trauma cases lead to major eye injuries which also responsiblefor the growth of this market.

Session7: Cataract and Refractive Surgery

Cataract affects an individual in 6 people over age fourty. 30.1 million Americans will expected to effected with cataracts by 2020. Several population-based blindness surveys and rapid assessments, conducted in the late 1990s, indicated that of all eyes operated on for cataract, 21–53% had a presenting visual acuity of less than 6/60. If anybody have a refractive error, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism or presbyopia, refractive surgery is a method for correcting or improving your vision. There are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting your eye's focusing ability by reshaping the cornea, or clear, round dome at the front of your eye. Other procedures involve implanting a lens inside your eye.

Session8: Glaucoma and Orthokeratology

Glaucoma is increasing rapidly for over 7 million visits every year with a potential increase of more than 60% by 2020. Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. It's often linked to a buildup of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.

Session9: Diabetic Retinopathy

The global diabetic retinopathy market was valued at USD 5.80 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period. Diabetic retinopathy leads to a serious sight threatening complication due to long term diabetes. The treatment for diabetic retinopathy depends on the severity of the condition and sometimes require intraocular injections.

Session10: Ocular Microbiology and Oncology

Ocular oncology is dealing with eye tumors, eyelid cancers, ocular melanomas, etc. It is the study of cancerous growth in any part of the eye and procedure usefull for tumor removal, vision improvement. The commonest tumour of the eye occurs in children and is called ‘retinoblastoma’. Hitherto, the only treatment available to prevent the tumour from spreading was removal of the eye, but now with newer technologies, the eye salvage rate has increased tremendously.

Session12: Nano Ophthalmology and Ophthalmic Drug Delivery

The ocular nanometer materials are mainly concentrated in controlled release systems. Due to the unique properties of nanometer materials such as higher bioavailability and less side effects, it has great advantages in carrying ocular drugs of eye diseases compared with the traditional dosing method. As a result, nano-controlled release system has good application prospect in eye diseases. At present, a variety of different types of nano-controlled release systems have been used to enhance the efficiency of the ocular drugs.
