A globally-oriented business, Topcon is focused on developing solutions towards solving societal challenges in the mega-domains of healthcare, agriculture, and infrastructure.
In healthcare, these challenges include increasing eye disease, rising medical costs, access to healthcare and physician shortages. By investing in value-driven innovations, Topcon works to enable people to enjoy good health and a high quality of life.
Topcon Healthcare has recently announced that it will host a two-day virtual symposia and expo entitled eyeRISE on February 9-10, 2021.
eyeRISE, or Eye Research Innovation Symposia & Expo, is a new, multi-disciplinary virtual congress showcasing the latest innovations in eye care. It will feature three solutions-focused tracks, delivering clinical and practical education through symposia, roundtable discussions and interactive workshops.
The two-day special event will feature more than three dozen globally-renowned speakers representing 17 countries and a range of specialties. Educational tracks are Building Clinical Confidence which includes topics focused on retina, glaucoma and imaging; Entering New Markets which addresses the barriers to entering myopia and dry eye management; and Too Many Patients, Not Enough Time highlighting topics such as ocular telehealth and remote diagnostics.
“We are very excited to announce eyeRISE, a one-of-a-kind, ground-breaking event that will bring together some of the most recognized names in the eye care industry to discuss the latest research and trends in patient care and practice management. In the absence of live meetings, eyeRISE provides an engaging, interactive virtual platform and offers education for a wide range of disciplines. It features solution-focused tracks for real world clinical and business management applications. eyeRISE is the culmination of Topcon’s unwavering commitment to support continued innovation in eye care,” stated Carolyn Evangelista, Global Director of Medical Affairs for Topcon Healthcare.
“eyeRISE will build on the success of our previous ISSOCT conferences and expand to include all facets of eye care, delivering clinical education for the retina, glaucoma and anterior segment subspecialties. The esteemed lecture panel will present their clinical findings on the latest research topics and innovation in eye care. It should prove to be a highly informative and enlightening meeting for all attendees,” stated ISSOCT Chairman Richard F. Spaide, MD, of Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants of New York, United States.
“Having the opportunity to network with colleagues and learn about the latest trends and technologies in eye care is critical for today’s practitioners, particularly in light of the global pandemic. eyeRISE provides practitioners with a unique opportunity to interact with the faculty and each other and gain practical tips and clinical insights. Given the challenges facing today’s eye care practitioners, eyeRISE represents a wonderful learning opportunity for all clinicians,” summarized faculty member Mingguang He, MD, PhD, Professor at the University of Melbourne, Australia.
