Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce and invite you to attend the 8th World Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology (COPHy), which will take place in Madrid, Spain, March 30-April 1, 2017.

COPHy EU in Madrid again will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2016 and 2017 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to focus on Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, and will discuss controversies in other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis. Topics will include the treatment regimens and drug choices for retinal diseases such as diabetic macular edema or age-related macular degeneration, the role of anti-VEGF agents versus panretinal photocoagulation in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, the current management of corneal disease with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, and novel medical and surgical glaucoma management methods.

We invite you to participate in the 8rd COPHy Europe Congress in Madrid.
