The last RIWC took place in Reykjavík, Iceland in June 2022 and was a hugely successful gathering of retinal experts. Fighting Blindness looks forward to hosting the congress at the Dublin Royal Convention Centre, Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin, and continuing to nurture and develop the great hope and optimism that emerged out of the last Congress. We will be bringing together the world’s foremost retinal scientists and clinicians alongside leaders in the fields of advocacy, patient representatives, health research and support organisations.
We look forward to sharing more information with you over the coming months on the Fighting Blindness website.
