FEOph Symposium and Roundtable Discussion

Berlin, September 30, 2017

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 Thomas Reinhard (Freiburg, Germany). The panel consisted of Massimo Busin (Forli/Italy), Salvador Garcá-Delpech (Valencia/Spain), Sophie Jones (London, UK), Jean-Mar Perone (Metz/France).
