The Ophthalmology Futures Forums were established in 2012 to fill a void with regard to industry- investor meetings specific for ophthalmology in Europe and Asia. The Forums focus on all aspects of global innovation in ophthalmology by connecting scientists, physicians, regulators, corporate leaders, venture capitalists and other investors who support the advancement of eye care.
