V International symposium
Focus on monitoring of various types of glaucoma

About symposium

Symposium “Controversies in Glaucoma: Focus on Monitoring of Various Types of Glaucoma” is an annual event designed to broaden and deepen knowledge of Russian ophthalmologists in the glaucoma diagnosis and treatment and to open a dialogue between the Russian and foreign doctors on the most complex and unresolved issues related to this disease. The problem of glaucoma is of interest in both Russia and abroad due to the fact that glaucoma is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the world, although there are a consensus and adopted standards for its diagnosis and monitoring.

The presentation of the latest achievements and exchange of opinions on these issues are very useful for both the Russian ophthalmologists and their foreign colleagues. From year to year the Symposium expands its boundaries and attracts more and more participants, which is encouraged by the videoconferences with different regions of Russia and foreign countries.

The Symposium is held by the Russian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (RSCRS) with the support of the State Duma Committee for Science and High Technology of the Russian Federation and “Greenlight” Environmental Public Organization.
