Recommended Conferences for Retinoblastoma


As per the report Eye Disorders has 14 Journals, 11 upcoming Conferences, 494 Conference proceedings, 190 Speakers related to the eye and vision. Retinoblastoma is a cancer that develops in the retina. It is located at the back of the eye ball and helps in focus the light that enters into the eyes. This cancer mostly develops in children during gestational period and is detected below the age of 5. This is caused due to a mutation in the gene RB1 and the exact cause of the mutation is yet to be determined. The retinoblastoma development may be germinal or due to a sporadic mutation.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

This disease accounts to about 5% of all children’s cancer in children younger than 15 years of age. In developed countries, 80% of children lose at least one eye, and in developing countries, 80% of children die due to this deadly cancer. In the United States alone every year about 300 children are diagnosed with this disease as per cancer organization. The solution for this disease is the surgical removal of cancerous cells present in the eye. This cancer is found more in male children than in females. The ratio of male to female children who have this disease is 1.12. In more than 80%percent of the cases, the tumors were unilateral meaning they were present in only one eye and the rest were bi or trilateral meaning there were tumors in both eyes or more than one tumour in each eye. Also, mean age of diagnosis of this cancer varies as below one year for hereditary retinoblastoma and below 3 years for sporadic retinoblastoma. In most children with retinoblastoma, the disease influence only one eye. But, one out of three children with retinoblastoma develops cancer in both eyes. The most usual first sign of retinoblastoma is a visible whiteness in the pupil called "cat's eye reflex" or leukocoria. This unusual whiteness is particularly visible in photographs taken with a flash. Other signs and manifestation of retinoblastoma include crossed eyes or eyes that do not point in the same direction (strabismus); persistent eye pain, irritation, or redness; and blindness or poor vision in the affected eye(s).

Market Analysis:

Retinal disorders, optic atrophy, and lesions of the higher visual pathways are the main anatomical causes of visual loss in children. WHO reports that, 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. 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. Addressing a gap in the ophthalmic market, the global ophthalmic market was valued at $10.3 billion in 2010 and is estimated to reach $13.2 billion in 2017.

Eye conference aims at bringing together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:

1. Eye Diseases and Treatment

2. Cornea and Corneal Diseases

3. Vision Science and Optometry
