The sessions will be split into two education tracks: ‘practice workflow’ and ‘disease management’, with attendees able to ask questions and participate in live chat alongside their peers.

The ‘practice workflow’ track will feature Prof Mitchell, director of the Centre For Vision Research at The Westmead Institute for Medical Research in Sydney. He also has a full-time academic appointment as Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Sydney (Westmead Hospital).

He will be joined by other summit speakers Dr Sri Ganesh (Nethradhama Superspeciality Eye Hospital, India), Dr Harvey Yu, Dr Jacob Cheng (Eagle Eye Centre, Singapore), and Dr Toshinori Murata (Shinshu University, Japan) who will speak on their experiences with new technology like the Zeiss SL800, retinal diagnostic tests, widefield fundus imaging and data-driven disease management.

Dr Philip Rosenfield, Professor of Ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in the US, will host the keynote presentation on the evolving clinical impact of OCT imaging.
