Retina UK Annual Conference

Our annual conference is the highlight of our Retina UK calendar. Attended by over 200 people each year, it attracts top speakers from the fields of medical research and science, and includes a variety of workshops, inspirational presentations and activities to get involved with. A medical question and answer session where the audience can put their questions to an esteemed panel of experts also features. It is also a great opportunity to affect others affected by inherited sight loss conditions. Attendance is free to members of Retina UK, with places costing £30 each to non-members. Registering your place early is recommended. Details about the 2019 Retina UK Annual Conference will be released in the new year.

“My family and I met some truly wonderful and inspirational people. I can honestly say it has changed the way I feel about retinitis pigmentosa. I don’t feel so alone having met, face to face, other people who actually understand my condition.”
