Welcome to the 8th Military Vision Symposium on Innovation and Unmet Needs for Ocular Injury. Our two-day event will focus on combat-related eye injuries—one of the most common, yet-less publicized types of war injuries. Today’s soldiers face threats from devices that cause extensive damage, particularly to areas not protected by body armor.
This symposium brings together military leaders, clinicians, and scientists, with the goal of propelling innovative research that will lead to improved treatment and prevention strategies for combat-related eye injuries. Panel discussions, lectures, and lightning talks will encompass a variety of topics that covers diagnosis, mitigation, and regenerative medicine aspects of eye injuries in mass casualties as well as the DoD and NIH funding trend.
Here at Harvard Ophthalmology, we nurture a spirit of inquiry and open dialogue and collaboration. Join us also to learn about the missions of NEI and DoD's Vision Research Programs. Thank you in advance for your active participation, which will greatly contribute to the success of this forum and will help us identify novel avenues for future exploration.
