Program AGRCS2022

The program for our fourth meeting promises to be very exciting with the goal to deliver you a highly scientific view of glaucoma diagnosis and treatment.

We changed the format slightly as a result of the feedback we received after AGRCS2020 & AGRCS2021: Each of the three days now consist of 3 sessions. A session consists of five 15-minute talks and ends with one combined Q&A and discussion session with all presenters.
