Moreover, the speakers are superb teachers and they come from United States, Japan, Australia, Europe and Indochina region. The main goal of the meeting is to provide current cutting edge approaches to diagnosis and treatment of the ocular inflammation of those uveitis entities which are prevalent in Asia-Pacific and in particular in Indochina. The presentations will be clinical case based with focus on diagnostic and treatment approaches by the invited speakers and delegates.
