A national conference in community ophthalmology

WHEN 3rd.& 4th June 2017 09:00 AM
WHERE MGM Eye Institute Raipur ,Chhattisgarh.

It is our immense pleasure to invite you to VISION 2020 – The Right to Sight - INDIA’s 13th annual conference ‘Inclusive Eye Care Services’.

‘Inclusive Eye Care Services’ on 3rd & 4th June, 2017 at MGM Eye Institute, Raipur, Chhattisgarh.

The VISION 2020: The Right to Sight- INDIA's annual conference is a unique platform in community ophthalmology. It offers a space for sharing skills, knowledge, and practices in each aspect of the eye care system and its successful management from clinical to managerial.

The design of the annual conference has evolved with each conference as we have endeavoured to incorporate conferences’ feedback to enrich it. Each year, we have attempted to keep the conference topics abreast and updated with the latest developments in the field of community ophthalmology and also focussed on systems strengthening spanning all departments in an eye care organisation.

This year we have amalgamated relevant topics under 12 Courses aiming to provide a larger space for in-depth exploration of topics and expansive discussions and interactions.

Come join us in the land of temples, waterfalls and forest. Welcome to MGM Eye Institute.

Regional Director, CBM

The conference brings together a unique platform – of people from different sectors – non-governmental, ophthalmologists, optometrists, practitioners, planners, and other service providers all with a common commitment to the goal of prevention of blindness. It is an opportunity to share learning and experience and interact with others towards this mission,”

Dr RD Ravindran
Chairman, Scientific Committee, 13th Annual Conference
Chairman, Aravind Eye Care Systems

“This conference is an unique opportunity for learning which is generally not available in the more commonly held CME’s that are more clinical in nature. This conference focuses more on delivery aspects and involves all the departments in an eye hospital,”

Dr Deepshikha Agrawal
Director & Trustee
MGM Eye Institute

“This is the first time a conference of this nature in community ophthalmology is being held in Chhattisgarh. MGM Eye Institute is proud to host it.
