Holographic displays, robots that assist people during eye examinations, visual field testing performed with a common smartphone: a window to the future was opened during ARVO 2018, an annual event, which – inaugurated on April 29th – ended on May 2nd in Honolulu, Hawaii (U.S.A.). Speakers from all over the world, including researchers with an innovative approach, met with a wide range of experts. The Director of the Italian National Centre for Vision Rehabilitation, Dr. Filippo Amore, also took part in the meeting, presenting research conducted with a futuristic visual device which has been conceived for the visually impaired.
During the event organised by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, alongside these groundbreaking themes, participants also discussed “classic” diseases, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), seasonal eye allergies and diabetic retinopathy.].
