Eurolam Retina works with a special interest in the macula and vitreoretinal diseases, uveitis, and tumors.
The society promotes the scientific exchange of knowledge between specialists, education, and research.

The retina is an evolving specialty that includes a specific medical and surgical knowledge; each case has
to be evaluated individually to determine the best management. It is of vital importance to share personal
experiences and results to grow up together.

Eurolam Retina organizes a biannual congress; also participates in international congresses through
symposia. It is active in European Congresses: European Society of Retina Specialists (EURETINA) and
European Society of Ophthalmology (SOE), American Congresses: American Society of Retina
Specialists (ASRS) and American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the World Ophthalmology
Congress (WOC).
