VII International symposium
Ocular blood flow in glaucoma: the current concept: the expert’s opinion

About symposium

The Symposium “Controversies in Glaucoma” is an annual event aimed to expand and deepen the knowledge of Russian ophthalmologists in diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, as well as to open a dialogue between Russian and foreign medical specialists on the most difficult and unresolved glaucoma aspects. The interest in glaucoma both in Russia and abroad is related to the fact that glaucoma is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the world, even despite the existing consensus and the accepted standards for glaucoma diagnosis and monitoring. The presentation of the latest achievements and the exchange of opinions on these issues are very useful both for Russian ophthalmologists and for their foreign colleagues. Every year the Symposium expands its borders and attracts more and more participants. It has become possible due to the telebridges with different Russian regions and foreign countries.
