RETICON 2023 sessions revolved around the topics of medical retina, surgical retina, and vitreo-retinal surgeries.

Prof. Dr. Amar Agarwal, Chairman, Dr Agarwals Eye Hospitals said, “Retinal diseases are the major cause of preventable blindness. 

Retinal diseases can be effectively managed if diagnosed on time, but unfortunately, retinal diseases get a low priority in blindness prevention programs compared to diseases like cataracts.  With rapid medical advances related to retinal diseases, their management and treatment are becoming much more affordable and effective".
