EURETINA - Portuguese participation

Another edition of EURETINA took place in Amsterdam earlier this month, with 136 Portuguese ophthalmologists taking part. Five days of immense learning with lectures, surgical skills training courses, as well as the opportunity to interact with speakers and colleagues from various countries. One of EURETINA's oldest and most permanent courses was once again held: the polypoid course was attended by Rufino Silva, Ângela Carneiro and Manuel Falcão. Rita Anjos, for her part, was a member of the Young Retina committee and took part in a Mistery Cases session. João Figueira was also a guest speaker at the course "OCT angiography: How to understand what we see". Also noteworthy was the fact that, for the first time, the EBO- Euretina exam for European Retina Fellows was carried out, with the participation of several Portuguese doctors.

Amsterdam was also the venue for two awards to Portuguese ophthalmologists: João Pedro Marques, winner of the Retinal Medicine Clinical Research Grant 2023 and Pedro Neves, 1st prize winner of the 8th edition of the EuroVeRsion surgical video competition.
