Berlin, September 1, 2016

During the FEOph Symposium, junior speakers from France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain were holding lectures with focus on „Do we still need the laser in diabetic macular edema?“. The presentations were followed by a roundtable discussion with five experts from these countries who discussed the different national approaches and strategies.

The roundtable discussion was chaired by Hansjuergen Agostini (Freiburg, Germany). The panel consisted of Patricia Bayo-Calduch (Valencia/Spain), Laurent Kodjikian (Lyon/France), Dominic McHugh (London/Great Britain).
