Our series of condition-specific webinars will continue on Wednesday 7 July. This third session will focus on:

Age related macular degeneration (AMD)
• Geographic atrophy (GA)
• Diabetic retinopathy (DR)
• Diabetic macular edema (DME)

These educational sessions are an extension of our Retina 2020 program and would normally, pre Covid-19, have taken place in person at Public Engagement Day.

If you would like to submit a question for one of our speakers please do so before the event. You can email your question to or call 01 678 9004. This will help us with time management on the day.

All of the sessions in the series will be recorded and will be available after the event.
