2022 Optic Disc Drusen Hybrid Conference

Registration is closed

The Stanford Center for Optic Disc Drusen at the Byers Eye Institute is hosting an international hybrid conference to share laboratory and clinical advances and seed collaborative opportunities, to educate the public about the state of optic disc drusen research, and to strategize about how to rapidly advance the field. Last year we had a successful international meeting of about 450 participants from 35 countries, and this year we are hosting our third annual meeting. Optic disc drusen are calcified deposits found at the anterior optic nerve in about 2% of the general population. It is an important risk factor for optic neuropathy and vision loss.

Given the current improvement in the COVID-19 pandemic, we anticipate this meeting will take place in person. For those who are unable to attend in person, we are pleased to offer this educational experience virtually through Zoom. We are tracking the pandemic closely and will update the plan as indicated. We are aware that this is an extremely challenging time for many people, and our sincere thoughts go out to the many who are suffering during this unprecedented crisis.

Registration is free. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the registration form below. Those who register will receive detailed information about the meeting.

In support of improving patient care, Stanford Medicine is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
