We are pleased to announce and invite you to attend the 6th Annual Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology:
Asia-Australia (COPHy AA) which will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, February 14-15, 2020.

The COPHy AA program, returning to Bangkok in 2020, again will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2019 and 2020 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will focus on Retina, but will discuss controversies in other related areas of ophthalmology, including neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis.

Topics will include the surgical and medical treatment of retinal diseases including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, retinal vein occlusions, pathologic myopia, and vitreomacular interface abnormalities, as well as advances in ophthalmic imaging, hereditary retinal diseases, surgical innovations, home monitoring, and the role of deep learning (artificial intelligence) in these conditions.
