Glaucoma Symposium in Edinburgh 2017
Venue: RCSEd, Edinburgh
Established in 2003, the Scottish Glaucoma Club meets twice a year, for interactive case discussion and updates on research, clinical data collection, shared care models, guidelines and education. Members are glaucoma specialists from across Scotland, however senior trainees and others with an interest in glaucoma are welcome to attend.
The first meeting was held in March 2003, in Edinburgh, and continues to be held twice a year, in February and September, immediately following the Scottish Ophthalmological Club meetings.
The first chairperson was Roshini Sanders (2003-08). The second - and current - chair is Donald Montgomery.
The Club also hosts an annual 'Scottish Glaucoma Symposium', in Edinburgh at the Royal College of Surgeons. Usually held on the third Friday in June, it was first held in 1999, and the meeting became annual in 2005. This is a popular and well attended event. We usually welcome some nationally renound speakers, leaders in the field of glaucoma; as well as updates and inspiration from local specialists and occasionally trainees.
The 2017 Scottish Glaucoma Symposium will be held on Friday 16 June, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh
