Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposium

The Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposium is a unique ophthalmological meeting. Held in St John’s College, Cambridge, it brings together basic scientists and clinicians to discuss a well defined topic in detail under the chairmanship of one of the leaders in that field. It has been running since 1971. More information about the Symposium can be found on the Symposium webisite.

The meeting appeals because it discusses one aspect of a broader subject in depth. Importantly and unusually, there is an equal amount of time allocated to discussion as to the delivery of the material. In this web focus we are proud to highlight some recent contributions from the 2015 to 2018 Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposiums. Written by leaders in the field they describe some of the latest and most exciting research and clinical management in ocular oncology, myopia and infectious eye disease.
