The core element of the conference – live surgery was conducted by Russian and German ophthalmosurgeons. Guests marked the importance of this kind of work for the audience: “We see, it’s not an edited film but live surgery, as it is, here it’s possible to compare all the parameters before and after surgery”.

All the surgeries will be available at official website of Ufa Eye Research Institute.

Ophthalmic community has a wide range of interests; however, a search for new scientific and technological solutions has always been its main component. “Thus the conference can be described as the school of advanced professional training,” – the participants of the conference say.

 "Leading Ophthalmologists, heads of major hospitals who came to the conference will not only learn something from us but also will share their experience," - said the director of Ufa Eye Research Institute Mukharram Bikbov - "Ophthalmology is one of a few medical sciences, which is moving forward very quickly. Almost every year it gives us new breakthrough technologies. If a few years ago we could not treat any serious disease of the fundus, the current developments allow us to do this. In this regard, the exchange of experiences at the conference is simply unique. "

Mukharram Bikbov noticed that the conference “East-West 2015” is held in advance of SCO and BRICS summits. In this regard a special session will be conducted where ophthalmologists from India, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan will present their research results.

The honorary guest of the conference, President of Russian Glaucoma Society, Doctor of Medical Science, E. Egorov noticed that presence of such amount of experts speaks for appreciation of Ufa Eye Research Institute by Russian and world ophthalmologists.

For the first time an interactive poster session and a video session will be organized including a discussion of electronic posters and films with interesting clinical cases.
