Category Specific Guidelines


1. Post-Mortem Analysis

We are introducing a new session this year –‘POST-MORTEM.’ Through this session our Aim is to learn from our failures. We invite cases from across retina spectrum- medical, surgical, oncology or uvea. We would need presenters to submit difficult cases despite being under regular care and timely interventions, the eye could not achieve expected anatomical and functional outcome. These will be put to our experts to explore the alternate way to maximize results in such difficult scenarios.
