  • Conference Call
  • ComtecMed Med­ical Con­gresses is pleased to announce and pleased to invite you to attend the 7th World Con­gress on Con­tro­ver­sies in Oph­thal­mol­ogy (COPHy), which will take place in War­saw, Poland at the Hilton War­saw Hotel and Con­ven­tion Cen­ter on March 31April 3, 2016.

    The great suc­cess of the pre­vi­ous six COPHy Con­gresses, held across Europe in Prague, Barcelona, Istan­bul, Budapest, Lis­bon, and Sor­rento, as well as the enthu­si­as­tic feed­back received from the most recent Con­gresses con­firmed the need for pro­ceed­ing with the 7th edi­tion of this dynamic Congress.

    We are excited to dis­close that COPHy War­saw will again 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 issues raised dur­ing the course of 2015 and 2016 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 of reti­nal dis­eases such as dia­betic mac­u­lar edema, 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 will be discussed.

    The sci­en­tific pro­gram will include overviews, state of the art lec­tures and con­tro­ver­sial debates. Out­stand­ing world lead­ers as fac­ulty will present both pro and con posi­tions while fur­ther chal­leng­ing and explor­ing the opti­mal treat­ment for patients, with empha­sis on the appro­pri­ate use of new and emerg­ing drugs. This for­mat includes a sub­stan­tial allo­ca­tion of time for inter­ac­tive debates and ques­tions from the audi­ence to each panel of experts. Par­tic­i­pants are encour­aged to take an active role in the dis­cus­sions with fac­ulty mem­bers which fol­low each debate, in a unique and open environment.
