The Moorfields Macula Course is one of the most prestigious ophthalmic events, and attracts attendees from all over Europe , who come to learn about the latest developments on retinal disorders. For the first time the course was held in Thessaloniki, Greece, with excellent participation from local and regional ophthalmologists. One of my interests is ocular inflammatory disease (uveitis) and I gave 2 lectures (“Diagnostic Testing”, and “Clinical features of uveitis and how to avoid the pitfalls”).
The lectures were very well received, and the meeting allowed a large number of prominent British consultants to make links with the local ophthalmologists, exchange ideas and compare the issues we face…..
In between lecturing, many of us visited the world famous tomb of Philip II (Alexander the Great’s father, at nearby Vergina), which is the only intact and undisturbed tomb ever found in Greece. Quite amazing!
