Translational research is becoming more and more important. The application from basic sciences to clinical application and development of therapies is the main objective of translatio- nal medicine. This year, we draw a bow from basic glaucoma science via diagnostics and therapies to glaucoma (live) surgery.
We will learn about neuroregeneration of astrocyte- stimulated plasticity in the CNS and molecular mechanisms of measuring apoptosis in retinal ganglion cells. In the clinical session, new algorithms for reducing measurement variability in OCT images are shared with the auditorium. Furthermore, new emerging technologies for glaucoma diagnosis and surgical the! rapies such as minimal invasive glaucoma surge- ries (MIGS) are presented.
The highlight of this symposium will be glaucoma live surgeries transmitted to the lecture hall on saturday.http://http://glaucoma-mainz.de/

| 12th ISOPT Clinical (Berlin, Germany, 09/07/2015 - 12/07/2015)|July 9-12th, 2015, Berlin, Germany
This year meeting will focus on drugs and devices as part of the ophthalmologist tool box dealing with ailments of the eye.Ophthalmology had been traditionally a surgical field. Over the last decades a slow, but significant revolution took place with the introduction of new drugs and utilizing invasive modes of delivery to the eye. In addition new devices and drug/device combinations are being launched and change the way we practice ophthalmology today.
The vision of ISOPT Clinical had evolved since 1995 centering on:
- Increased knowledge and awareness of drug use in ophthalmology.
- Reflecting innovations and their application in the daily practice.
- Bridging the present to the future.
This will be reflected via the following missions:
- Discussion of treatment algorithms in major ophthalmic indications
- Implement data from clinical studies for daily practice
- Facilitate innovation - connecting innovators with clinicians
- Encourage meetings of young innovators with the pharma industry
ISOPT Clinical offers a relevant and updated scientific program in a relaxed atmosphere leading to direct interactions of its delegates.http://www.isoptclinical.com

The great success of the previous five COPHy Congresses, held in Prague, Barcelona, Istanbul, Budapest, Lisbon, and the enthusiastic feedback from the latest Congress illustrated the need for this dynamic Congress. We are excited to disclose that COPHy Sorrento will again be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst chairpersons, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant issues raised during the course of 2014 within the field of ophthalmology.
This educational Congress will continue to focus on Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina sections, and will discuss controversies in other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, as well.
The Scientific Program will include overviews, state of the art lectures and controversial debates. Outstanding world leaders as faculty will present both pro and con positions while further challenging and exploring the optimal treatment for patients, with emphasis on the appropriate use of new and emerging drugs. This format includes a substantial allocation of time for interactive debates and questions from the audience to each panel of experts. Participants are encouraged to take an active role in the discussions with faculty members which follow each debate, in a unique and open environment. http://email@example.com

Academically, the COPHy AA will raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the field of Ophthalmology. The Congress will promote excellence in this field by seeking to shed light on ongoing and challenging debates and to bridge gaps between the expansion of information and its consolidation in clinical practice.
Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when data remains limited, through evidence-based medicine and expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared expe! riences and opinions of leading local and international experts.
The COPHy AA will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of Retina, Anterior Segment, Glaucoma sections, diagnostics, typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments.
Many of the Faculty members will be local in order to facilitate the involvement of a large number of participants in the debates and to discuss typical regional problems.http://www.comtecmed.com/cophy/aacophyAA@comtecmed.com

| Glaucoma Surgery - Balancing Safety and Success (London, UK, 16/09/2014)|September 16th, 2014, Royal College of Physicians, London, UK
The only successful method for treating glaucoma is by lowering the intraocular pressure. Whilst many patients can be stabilised by pharmacological means some patients (with advanced disease, refractory IOP with high risk of visual loss, progressing despite drops or intolerant of drops) will require surgical intervention.
Conventional glaucoma filtration surgery (trabeculectomy) can be extremely successful at reaching low target IOPs but this may come at risk of vision threatening complications through low pressure or infection.
In this one day seminar, the central role of augmented 'safe' trabeculectomy will be discussed, with particular reference to identifying high risk patients and how to avoid serious complications whilst ensuring a good IOP lowering effect. The role of alternative surgical approaches, in particular 'large' aqueous shunts along with non-penetrating techniques and newer micro-invasive surgical techniques will be discussed. An approach to learning and teaching glaucoma surgery will also be detailed.
By the end of the seminar, attendees will have a broad understanding of the different available surgical techniques for managing glaucoma. In particular, they will understand the often complex balance between safety and surgical success and will have a rational understanding of why certain surgical approaches are undertaken in high risk patients.http://www.rcophth.ac.uk/events.asp?itemid=1542&itemTitle=Glaucoma+Surgery+%2D+Balancing+Safety+and+Success§ion=23§ionTitle=Events+%26+College+Meetings
