The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) have formed a joint venture, Ophthovation, to advance ophthalmology and innovation through the next generation of business conferences.
The inaugural Ophthovation conference starts 14 May 2020, prior to the ASCRS annual meeting at the Sheraton Boston in Boston. It will be chaired by ASCRS leadership Drs Eric Donnenfeld, Ed Holland and Tom Samuelson. The second Ophthovation conference is on 12 November 2020, in conjunction with the AAO annual meeting at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
Ophthovation will be held every year prior to the annual meetings of the AAO and the ASCRS. The events are designed for all innovation stakeholders, including entrepreneurs, executives, investors and ophthalmologists.
