About Aegean Retina

The Aegean Retina Meeting rapidly disseminates advances in vitreoretinal diseases and treatments, with international experts and specialists gathered in a congenial way. Over the years, the Aegean Retina has become very successful due to its top scientific content that is combined with spectacular destinations. As a result most participants have attended the meeting more than once.


Our themes for the Aegean Retina Meeting XV are the Advances in Vitreoretinal Diseases: Diagnostics, Pharmacotherapy, Surgical Instrumentation, and Basic Research. 



The meeting will include scientific sessions featuring papers, and special lectures.  A session dedicated in interesting clinical retina cases is also planned. This session is addressed mainly to young colleagues who would like to make their introductory presentation in a highly specialized, but always-friendly audience


The Aegean Retina Meetings’ participants are encouraged to bring their spouses/families along as the meeting also offers opportunity for an extensive array of entertaining activities, and excursions for participants and accompanying persons. The meeting will be held in the spectacular island of Santorini.
