International symposium
Neuroprotection in the modern world

About symposium

Dear colleagues, we invite you to participate in the International Webinar "Controversies in Glaucoma: Neuroprotection in the modern world", which will be held on May 20, 2022. The problem of neuroprotective treatment of glaucoma is the most intriguing and relevant among others concerning glaucoma, and is still far from being solved. It has been 10 years since we first discussed it at our symposium. This year we will discuss what has happened in the field of neuroprotection for these 10 years, and what the prospects are.
