The European Glaucoma Society held its Members’ Meeting on the 30th-31st August. This joint meeting with the American Glaucoma Society gathered more than 170 delegates from both sides of the Atlantic at the Palace de la Bourse in Bordeaux, France. Preceded by the Next Generation Partnership (NGP) day, this event saw the gathering of all generations of EGS members to address two main themes: “Insights into Glaucoma Pathogenesis through New Diagnostic Methods” and “Transforming Glaucoma Care: Power and Pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence”.
Using an interactive format for active discussion, leading researchers explored the challenges opportunities and caveats of the new frontiers in diagnosis, ranging from imaging and genetics to artificial intelligence. Merging high-quality scientific discussion with the friendly feeling of EGS’ members’ meetings, this meeting showcased the tools that will hopefully help achieve the EGS vision.
