Whats About

If you are a leading ophthalmologist or an eye specialist performing medical and surgical procedures and are experts at diagnosis, treatment and in study of the anatomy and physiology of the eye, than ARVO Congress 2017 is your idealistic meet to be present at. The Association for research in vision and ophthalmology congress is the host to all medical specialists, doctors, physicians and allied professionals practicing in the field of eye care and vision to know about the latest cutting edge technology and to be updated with the scientific advancements made in the said field for providing better care and treatment to patients. The ARVO Congress 2017 is taking place at Baltimore, USA from 7th to 11th May 2017 with theme of ‘Global Connections in Vision Care’.  This annual meet of the ARVO is a host to more than 11,000 attendees from across the world who share the same professional and the zeal to excel in their medical fields. Knowledge is valuable only when shared with others and this is the perfect platform for doctors and medical experts to make connections, spread knowledge and gain wisdom from the best of professionals to help better their own practice. Be a part of ARVO Annual Meet 2017 to get enriched and to enlighten the attendees with your research work and scientific updates and contribute to help excel the field of ophthalmology by providing knowledge to perform best medical procedures and treatment to patients suffering from various eye related problems and to help young budding doctors to prosper in their research work. Be there to bring a positive change. Dates to Remember:
