The program covered a large variety of topics, from basic science to clinical practice, divided into over a dozen different sections.

Clara presented her recent research discoveries with the poster entitled “Automated non-invasive method for dry eye prediction” and Izabela was presenting her side project, which was the result of cooperation with Danilo A. Jesus – ESR from other Marie Curie ITN action, called AGEYE. The poster was entitled “Scleral radius estimation based on anterior eye surface“.

The theme of the ARVO 2017 Annual Meeting was Research: Global connections in vision research. The conference allowed people to socialize and meet other scientists and eye care professionals. It was a wonderful opportunity for the ESR to meet researchers who share the same scientific background and to exchange ideas and expertize. A very high level of lectures and guest speakers talked about the most recent state of the art in ophthalmology and vision science. It was a very educational and positive experience for the ESRs.
