International Conference and Expo on Optometry and Vision Science
October 20-22, 2016 Rome, Italy

Theme: Advances in Diagnosis & Treatment of vision : Vision for Life

OMICS International is proud to announce the commencement of   “International Conference and Expo on Optometry and Vision Science” at Italy, Rome from Oct 27-29, 2016. The scientific program concentrates around the theme “Advances in Diagnosis & Treatment of vision: Vision for Life”. OMICS International invites Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, renowned scientists, pathologists, surgeons, young researchers, industrial delegates and talented student communities under a single roof where networking and global partnering happens for the acceleration of future research at Vision Science-2016.


Vision Science is the scientific study of vision. such as how human and non-human organisms  process visual information, how conscious visual perception works in humans, how to exploit visual perception for effective communication, and how artificial systems can do the same tasks. Vision science overlaps with optometry.  The health care profession concerned with examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the eyes and related structures, and with determination and correction of vision problems using lenses and other optical aids. This area of research includes major highlights such as peripheral vision and mechanisms of visual pathways. . Today, there are an estimated 180 million individuals globally who are visually impaired (less than 20/60 in the better eye). Approximately 135 million have low vision (between 20/70 and 20/400). The remaining 45 million are blind (corrected visual acuity of less than 20/400 in the better eye) with 60 percent of these individuals living in India, China and sub-Saharan Africa.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO), despite current interventions, blindness in the world is increasing by 1 to 2 million cases per year – the result is a “doubling of world blindness by the year 2020 unless more aggressive intervention is undertaken.”


      The organizing committee is gearing up for an informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from all over the world. We invite you to join us at the Optometry and vision science-2016, where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with scholars from around the world. All members of the vision science-2016 organizing committee look forward to meeting you in Italy, ROME.

Importance& Scope:

Vision Science is an international platform for presenting research exchanging ideas about it. Optometry is a healthcare profession concerned with the eyes and related structures, as well as vision, visual systems, and vision information processing in humans eye. Optometry continues to be an attractive field of medicine with great opportunities. It will help to gain knowledge about the recent advancements and it is of course a good opportunity to discuss various aspects of optometry and its instruments. A  phoropter  is  an ophthalmic testing device It is commonly used by eye care professionals during an eye examination.

Glance at Market of Optometry:

The Optometrists industry has been around for centuries and is currently in the mature stage of its economic life cycle. Over the 10 years to 2020, industry value added, which measures the industry's contribution to the economy, is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 1.6%. This expansion indicates that the industry will grow slower than the overall US economy; GDP is projected to rise 2.5% annually on average over the same period. The medical device market of Europe is mainly comprised of medical equipments such as consumables, orthopaedic devices, dental devices, respiratory devices, and ophthalmic devices which are manufactured in Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Spain. The demand for medical devices has been growing owing to a mounting awareness for early diagnosis and treatment of countless disease states in European countries. The key countries that have contributed significantly to the Europe medical devices market during 2008-2013 include Germany, UK , Spain and France. Germany is one of the major European markets and it has been observed that the country contributes immensely to the exports of medical devices. 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.
