WAEH Webinar – Covid-19 and Innovations in the Macular Services

2022-05-16 10:48:37

These are challenging times for all eyehospitals worldwide. All eyehospitals have been delaying a large number of patients and patient willingness to come into the clinic has fallen to a low. On the upside: Covid-19 seems to be an enabler to speed up innovation in eyehospitals and speed up implementation of telemedicine, video consultations, virtual clinics and more. But what has been the impact of COVID-19 on Macular Services? How did Moorfields Eye Hospital innovate the Macular Services during the COVID-19 pandemic? Feel free to attend this webinar with a keynote by Adam Mapani from Moorfields Eye Hospital!
