Invitation to an IGA Glaucoma Patient Conference, Newcastle 2018
Following the success of our Annual Lectures in London earlier in the year, we decided to hold a similar event for our members in the North East area, and I’m delighted to invite you to join us at a Patient Conference on Friday 30 November at The Great Hall, Sutherland Building, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Refreshments will be available from 2pm and the event starts at 2.30pm with a keynote lecture about the future of glaucoma care by IGA Chair and consultant ophthalmologist Prof Philip Bloom, covering the latest news on laser and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery. This will be followed by a dry eye disease presentation by Glaucoma Clinical Fellow David Lunt, then optometrist Zoe Richmond will talk briefly about the role of optometrists in glaucoma care. This will be followed by a Q&A session where you can put questions to our panel of experts chaired by Prof Bloom, and we’ll end with a drinks reception from 5pm to 6.30pm.
The conference is free to attend but places are limited and booking is essential, so to secure your place and for details on how to find the venue and where to park, please call us on 01233 64 81 64 or email Richenda at firstname.lastname@example.org
