The macula course 2023

Bookings for the 2023 course are now closed.

Retinal diseases are a major cause of blindness. Diagnostic investigations, understanding of disease mechanisms, new therapies, and the evidence base, have all evolved rapidly in recent years, with greater advances expected in the coming decade.

The Moorfields Macula Course has been running over three decades with a pause during the COVID pandemic. The course restarted in 2022 as a 3-day hybrid course. In response to feedback, the 2023 course has been extended to 4 days and will take place from Monday 19th - Thursday 22nd June 2023.

The speakers are recognised experts, many having contributed to major advances in their fields, and there will be opportunity for interaction both on site and virtually.

The course aims to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of retinal and macular diseases and their management, including new developments.
