WAM DUBAI: Vision-X Dubai is gearing up to welcome over 3,900 top industry professionals from more than 63 countries to the Middle East's largest and most established optical and ophthalmic exhibition and conference next month.
Growing in size year on year, the show is now in its 13th edition and is set to maximise opportunities for exhibitors to expand their market share, allowing them to network with key industry players, discover new trends and launch new products.
One of the highlights of Vision-X Dubai this year will be the Middle East Africa Vitreo-Retinal Society (MEAVRS) Clinical Uveitis Course. Launched in 2009, MEAVRS is one of the subspecialty societies of the Middle East Africa Council of Ophthalmology. It aims to promote Vitreo-Retinal education and training in member societies. All attending conference delegates will receive a certificate of continuing medical education.
"Eye care is an essential part of the healthcare sector," said Trixee Loh, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre. "Vision-X Dubai aims to cover the entire spectrum of the industry by including globally recognised training and education programmes on the agenda, along with showcasing latest products and developments. This year, Vision-X will bring in distinguished speakers from renowned institutions around the region to speak at the event. The discussion of latest scientific information and best practices, knowledge sharing, and networking opportunities will no doubt make this show a key feature on the eye care industry calendar." Organised with the support of the Emirates Medical Association Ophthalmic Society, this intensive course will be held on 10 May, and provide a comprehensive educational programme for ophthalmologists, optometrists and eye care providers from around the world. It will feature international experts in ophthalmology to discuss critical information on the diagnosis and treatment of uveitis, an eye condition prevalent in this region.
