Program AGRCS2022

The program for our fourth meeting promises to be very exciting with the goal to deliver you a highly scientific view of glaucoma diagnosis and treatment.

We changed the format slightly as a result of the feedback we received after AGRCS2020 & AGRCS2021: Each of the three days now consist of 3 sessions. A session consists of five 15-minute talks and ends with one combined Q&A and discussion session with all presenters.

All sessions will be recorded and then made available on-demand directly after the congress and will be accessible to all participants for another three months after the congress.

Learning objectives

  • Improve your ability to treat glaucoma based on new research findings, drug and device development(s).
  • Introduce newest techniques, how it could affect previous best practices
  • Identify newest research and future directions
  • Updates on MIGS
  • Updates on newest and pipeline drugs and their underlying modes of action
  • Learn about the newest, often unpublished trabecular meshwork, optic nerve, uveal scleral & other outflow research
  • Discuss the implications of this new research on Glaucoma drug and device development
  • Promote increased opportunities for collaborative scientific research and publications, provide a collegial environment and encourage new investigators

 
All sessions will be recorded and then made available on-demand directly after the congress and will be accessible to all participants for another three months after the congress.
