The threat of a global blindness epidemic is real. But there is hope: the pace of research is accelerating every minute.
By convening intimate meetings, or symposia, of top experts in the field of eye research, the Ocular Research Symposia Foundation (ORSF) strives to move this research forward at an even more rapid pace.
Our approach is unique. We believe we can accomplish more in a few hours of frank discussions among colleagues than can be achieved in a week-long conference of hundreds of attendees.
At the close of each symposium, we produce a report, available for free download to anyone who registers on our site, which is sent to members of Congress. In this way, we are able to guide research funding by compiling the best and latest knowledge of top eye research experts.
