5th International Conference on Clinical & Experimental Ophthalmology
August 04-06, 2015 Valencia, Spain
 

Theme: Scientific Eye for Visual Intelligence

Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, functions, pathology and treatment of the eye. Clinical research is, and has always been, crucial to furthering our understanding of ophthalmic conditions- and their treatment and prevention. Over the years, the field of ophthalmology has undergone an enormous expansion in basic research and clinical trials as well as in cutting-edge technology. The growing challenges of ophthalmic diseases, Corneal Ulceration infective condition of the cornea, Macular Degeneration major cause of blindness and visual impairment in older adults (>50 years), Nystagmus uncontrollable movements of the eyes, Conjunctivitis, cataract, refractive surgery, and glaucoma and Retinoblastoma including diabetic retinopathy has reached epidemic dimensions, and a myriad of treatment possibilities are being explored in different directions. The fields of dry eye, refractive surgery, oculoplastics, advances in IOLs, and socioeconomic issues also have contributed to the need to debate many controversial issues, which come up in clinical situations each and every day. 82% of people living with blindness are aged 50 and above. The number of people visually impaired from infectious diseases has reduced in the last 20 years according to global estimates work.

 “The worldwide ophthalmic products market exceeds $22 billion (US) and is growing at more than 10% per year. Without the inclusion of consumer eye care products, the ophthalmic products market is roughly a $17 billion market.” Rising of demand for ophthalmic devices and expanding healthcare coverage in emerging economies will increase sales to 2024. The overall medical devices market in Europe is projected to reach EUR ~ million in 2018, augmenting at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2013-2018.

Importance & Scope:

      It enhances ophthalmic education to improve eye care Institutes like (NIE, Wilmer are involved) Contribute to preservation and restoration of vision around the world.

  • About 90% of the world’s visually impaired live in low-income settings.
  • 82% of people living with blindness are aged 50 and above.
  • Globally, uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of moderate and severe visual impairment; cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in middle- and low-income countries.
  • The number of people visually impaired from infectious diseases has reduced in the last 20 years according to global estimates work.
