The Macula Course

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 recent pause during the COVID pandemic. The course will restart in a new format in June 2022 as a 3-day hybrid course which participants can attend in-person or online. 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.
