SESSIONS AND TRACKS

Track 1. Current Research Trends in Ophthalmology, Optometry and Glaucoma

The novel research in ophthalmology relates to systems, arrangements, headways and structures to achieve the required consistent effect. The novel approach is legitimate to Anti IL-6 treatment, pharmaceuticals in doing battling visual need, translational research for periocular basal cell carcinoma and sebaceous cell carcinoma and updates in relationship of thyroid eye tainting. The novel analysis relates to systems, courses of action, progressions and structures to meet the specified firm impact. Conditions like cornea tissue layer modification and transplantationchoroidal imaginationcornea tissue layer neovascularization can be managed by the use of novel vision modification systems.

Research in ophthalmology and optometry conferences incorporates examinations in zones, as an example, binocular scatters, low vision, visual disorder, geriatrics, pediatrics, and also the impacts of eye related lens system wear. Basic exploration in Vision Science concentrates on such trains as medical science, experimental psychology, neuroscience, visual neurobiology, atomic and cell science, cell film natural chemistry, biostatistics, apply autonomy, contact lensesspatial route, visual contaminations, refractive improvementcornea tissue layer surface mapping, infant vision, computational vision, and 3D PC displaying.

Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. Fortunately, several new therapies in glaucoma are finally beginning to move from the laboratory to the clinic for human testing. Some of these are directed at preventing retinal ganglion cell and optic nerve degeneration, called “neuroprotection,” others at regrowing retinal ganglion cell axons down the optic nerve towards the brain, termed “regeneration”, and still others at replacing retinal ganglion cells altogether.

Track 2. Retina, Cornea and Eye Disorders

The retina is a thin layer of tissue on the inside back wall of eye. It contains millions of light-sensitive cells and other nerve cells that receive and organize visual information. Retina sends this information to brain through optic nerve, enabling one to see. The main area of retina contains a high density of color-sensitive photoreceptor cells called cones which are responsible for color vision and hence any defect and alteration in the main area of the retina will lead to Color vision defects.

Eye consists of terribly sensitive and fragile tissues and each part of this serves its own function to keep up its general vision. The cornea is the front part of the eye which is transparent and covers the irispupil, and anterior chamber. The cornea, with the anterior chamber and lens, refracts light, accounting for roughly two-third portions of the eye's total optical power.

There are many disorders associated with eye, principally with retina and cornea. These includes Acanthamoeba KeratitisAmblyopiaAstigmatismBell's PalsyBionic Eye ImpulseBlepharitis, Blurry VisionChalazionCMV RetinitisConjunctivitis (Pink Eye), Corneal Abrasion (Scratched Eye)Corneal Collagen CrosslinkingCorneal UlcerDetached RetinaDiabetic RetinopathyDouble Vision (Diplopia)Dry Eye InfographicEye HerpesEye Occlusions (Eye Strokes)Fuchs' Corneal DystrophyGlaucomaHyperopia (Farsightedness)HyphemaKeratoconusMacular DystrophyMacular HoleMeibomian Gland DysfunctionMilia (Eyelid Cysts)Myopia (Nearsightedness)NystagmusOcular HypertensionOcular MigraineOcular RosaceaOptic Neuritis and Optic NeuropathyPhotophobia (Light Sensitivity)PterygiumPtosis (Drooping Eyelid) etc.

Track 3. Ocular Microbiology, Immunology and Oncology

Microorganisms such as bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites can enter the human body and are capable enough to spread to attack the interior surface of an eye thus spreading the infection. The interior of the eye lacks lymph vessels but is highly vascularized, and many immune cells reside in the uvea, mostly macrophages, dendritic cells, and mast cells. These cells fight off intraocular infections, and intraocular inflammation can manifest as uveitis (including iritis) or retinitis. The cornea of the eye is immunologically a very special tissue as it is vulnerable to a wide range of microorganisms while its moist mucosal surface makes the cornea particularly susceptible to attack. It additionally provides a big portion of the eye’s refractive power, which means it should not only keep remarkable transparency, but must also work as a barrier to stay away from pathogens as they cannot reach at the rest of the eye.

Ocular oncology is a multidisciplinary service which provides the information about eye malignancy by the general oncologists, pediatric oncologists, specialist nurses, clinical scientists and plenty of others. The most common malignancies include uveal and conjunctival melanomauveal metastasisintraocular and conjunctival lymphoma and conjunctival carcinoma. The commonest cancer of eye occurs in kids which is known as ‘Retinoblastoma’. The second most common intra-ocular malignancy is Choroidal Melanoma occurs among adults. ocular oncologists receive an oversized range of referrals of patients with suspected malignant tumors. Diagnosis relies on biomicroscopy, angiography, optical coherence tomography, ultrasonography, biopsy and autofluorescence imaging. The most common benign tumors include naevi, chorodal haemangiomasvasoproliferative tumours, and retinal haemangioblastomas. Many of these lesions require treatment and/or long-term surveillance.

Track 4. Clinical Ophthalmology and Oculoplastic Surgery

The eye is a delicate organ, and requires extraordinary care some time recently, amid, and after a surgical methodologyClinical Ophthalmology improves idea into normal visual illnesses, ophthalmic surgical and laser methodology, clinical life structures and visual therapeutics. Patients with eye diseases get examined by ophthalmologists and optometrists. Clinical or Surgical Ophthalmology is a sub-specialty of Ophthalmology, where surgeries like cataract surgery and laser eye surgery are done. Oculoplastic surgery involves the organization of the eyelids, tear channels and re-gainful surgery. Refractive surgery is a process where progression of the vision is done. The most performed kind of refractive surgery is LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), where the cornea tissue layer is reshaped employing a optical laser therapy. Glaucoma surgery may be a laser or non-laser, is the procedure for achieving main results like decreasing the production of intraocular fluid (aqueous humor) or increasing the drainage of this same fluid. Visual surgery or Ophthalmic surgery is the surgery performed on the adnexa, frequently by an associate specialist.

Eye surgery is a much common and easy way to recover any eye disease because the surgery does not give any pain. It can be treated with ultrasound, B-scan ultrasonographyMagnetic resonance imaging etc. Intraocular Lens Implantation (IOL) is a lens implanted in the eye used to treat Cataracts or Astigmatism. Main types are Toric IOLsMonovision with Intraocular LensesAspheric IOLsBlue Light-Filtering IOLsLight-Adjustable Lenses (LALs), "Piggyback" IOLs. Main methodologies of eye surgery for cataract include PhacoemulsificationManual small incision cataract surgery (MSICS), Extra capsular cataract extraction (ECCE), Intracapsular cataract extraction (ICCE), Cryoextraction, Use of Intra ocular antibiotics to prevent infection in cataract surgeries. Other surgical procedures include Wavefront LASIKLASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis), PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), AK or RLI (astigmatic keratotomy) and RK (radial keratotomy), CK (conductive keratoplasty), Intact corneal ringsRLE (refractive lens exchange) and PRELEX (presbyopic lens exchange) and EpiLasik.

Track 5. Pediatric Ophthalmology and Neuro Ophthalmology

Pediatric ophthalmology is a specialization of eye maladies, visual advancement and vision mind in children which is a sub-claim to fame of ophthalmology. Pediatric Ophthalmology conjointly focuses on problems which have an effect on the pediatric vision likewise pediatric uveitisdevelopmental abnormalitiesgenetic eye diseases and more. It is a vision development disorder which is also known as lazy eyeAmblyopia is an eye problem which emerges in kids can also be present in adults. Children with obvious vision problems, head turns, head tilts, squinting of the eyes, or preferred head postures (torticollis) are typically referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist for evaluation. Pediatric ophthalmologists generally manage adults with eye movement disorders (like strabismus or nystagmus) also due to their common issues with strabismus conditions.

Neuro-ophthalmology includes the merging field of neurology and ophthalmology, oftentimes managing complex complicated problems associated with the visual framework. The visual impairments caused by run-down of the retrochiasmatic visual pathways by injury to the anterior visual pathways or any major ocular disorder is known as Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI). Another disease caused by a breakdown at intervals between nerves and muscles that ends up in visual defect called diplopia, drooping eyelids and muscles weakness is called as Myasthenia gravis which gives impact on the both vision and neuromuscular activity. Besides, the involuntary eye movement (nystagmus) which is gained in infancy or later in life may result in reduced or restricted vision. Factors like cerebral macular degeneration and chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia also the major effecting part of neuro-ophthalmology. Demonstrative instruments in Neuro-ophthalmology are utilized to explore and to treat the different state of Neuro-ophthalmology as Neonatal visual examination are basically performed to screen the vicinity and movement of Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Track 7. Novel Approaches for Ophthalmic Drug Delivery

Visual medical speciality in Pharmacology and medicine is the principle multidisciplinary supplying crucial and basic clinical research about biopharmaceuticals and different techniques which can possibly treat, anticipate, and/or analyze visual maladies and disarranges. Some of the breakthrough in ophthalmic research and advance drug delivery system can be Punctal PlugsOcular TherapeuticsMati therapeutics (QLT) and gel-forming drops to widen the therapeutic effect of a specific drug. Topical combination of corticosteroid & anti-infective agents, Drugs used in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitisOral & topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) and Retinoblastoma chemotherapy are few developed formulations to treat ophthalmic diseases. The use of drug-loaded contact lenses and ocular inserts allows drugs to be better placed where they are needed for more direct delivery. Developments in ocular implants provides a method to beat the physical barriers that conventionally prevented efficacious treatment. Implant technologies area are beneath development permitting everlasting drug delivery from one procedure, these devices permitted posterior chamber diseases to be completely treated. Future developments might come with artificial corneas to abolish the necessity for donor tissue and occurrence of implantable drug depots remaining the patient's duration of life. Drugs, that are used, are the types of PhenylephrineCyclopentolateAntihistamines and Decongestants.

AllerganPfizerBausch + LombMerck & Co. and Regeneron like companies are vigorously involving in ophthalmic research and drug development. According to Visiongain (Ophthalmic Drugs: World Market Prospects - 2013-2023; October 2013), the worldwide ophthalmic market was $17.5 billion in 2011 and is expected to grow to $34.7 billion by 2023, representing a 5.9% compounded annual growth rate.

Track 8. Optometry and Eye Care

Optometry is nothing but the profession of inspecting the eyes for imperfection in vision and eye disorders by means of worthy appliances or instruments in order to recommend corrective lenses or other proper treatment.

Special instruments are used by the Doctors of optometry to assess defects in eye and recommend contact lenses or eyeglasses to improve deficiencies. Minor surgeries can also be performed to eliminate foreign bodies from an eye and they also suggest exercises to boost the eyes work.

Patients are also referred to medical doctors and specialists by an optometrist for other injuries or diseases that eventually damage vision. The doctor evaluates the patient’s peripheral vision and observes at the structure of the retina during a clinical optometry examination. Astigmatism can be diagnosed then by them which might be caused by deflection of the retina and they prescribe corrective lenses to upgrade vision. The doctor can typically counsel the patients if they prefer contact lenses on their use to stave off infection.

Track 9. Cataract and Refractive Surgery

cataract, that lies behind the iris and the pupil, is a clouding of the eye's natural lens. The most prevalent cause of vision loss in people over age 40 is cataract and this is the main cause of blindness in the earth. Surprisingly, more cataract cases are there than glaucomadiabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration combined in worldwide, according to Prevent Blindness America (PBA). There are more than 22 million Americans having cataract today at age 40 and older. PBA says that more than 30 million Americans are supposed to have cataracts by the year 2020.

Surgical procedures which cure common eyesight problems (astigmatismpresbyopianearsightedness and farsightedness) to diminish the dependency on prescribed eyeglasses and/or contact lenses are known as Refractive surgeryLASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is the most common surgery now a day where a laser is used to reshape the cornea. But there are also other laser procedures and intraocular lens procedures to correct the vision by reshaping the cornea or clear, round dome at the front portion of the eye. Implanting a lens inside the eye may be another procedure to correct the vision.

Track 10. Glaucoma and Vision Disorders

Glaucoma, called as the silent thief of sight, is an eye disease that is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure, in which damage to the eye (optic) nerve can lead to loss of vision and even blindnessIntraocular pressure increases when either too much fluid is produced in the eye or the drainage or outflow channels (trabecular meshwork) of the eye become blocked.

The accurate causes of optic nerve damage, which comes from glaucoma, includes mechanical compression and/or attenuate blood flow of the optic nerveVisual information is carried by this optic nerve from the eye to the brain, which is the part of the central nervous system. The nerve fiber extensions of the retinal ganglion cells have made axons and this cranial nerve is built over one million nerve axons. The optic nerve becomes damaged when the eye pressure is increased, and/or other stimulating factors exist there and a process namely Apoptosis happens where the retinal ganglion cells undergo a leisurely procedure of cell death. The death of the retinal cells and degeneration of the nerve fibers results in permanent vision loss.

In addition to eye problems, secondary systemic (body) symptoms may occur. These secondary symptoms are especially common with acute glaucoma. Examples include irritabilityloss of appetite, and vomiting

Track 11. Treatments and Medications of Glaucoma

Glaucoma treatment is based on the nature and severity of each case. Normally it cannot be cured, however it can be managed. Pills, laser procedureseye drops and surgical operations are used to stop or control further harm from occurring. Regular eye examinations are much important to recognize progression and to stop vision loss. As glaucoma can get at worst without being aware of it, to achieve a lower "target eye pressure", treatment will probably need to be changed at time to time.

Several innovative approaches to glaucoma surgery show promise for better safety. As with all new procedures, time and much follow-up study are required to see which ones will remain useful for helping glaucoma patients long-term. 

Glaucoma is usually treated with eye drops taken often many times each day, whenever needed in combination with pills. Circulation of eye fluid can be altered, and eye pressure can be lowered by these medications, either by increasing the flow leaving the drainage angle, or by decreasing the production of fluid within the eye.

Several medications are currently in use to treat glaucoma. Eye drops used in managing glaucoma decrease eye pressure by helping the eye’s fluid to drain better and/or decreasing the amount of fluid made by the eye. Drugs to treat glaucoma are arranged by their dynamic fixing. These include: prostaglandin analogsbeta blockersalpha agonists, and carbonic anhydrase inhibitorsBlend drugs are accessible for patients who require more than one sort of prescription.

Track 12. Traditional/Herbal Therapeutics in Ophthalmology

Globalization and cross movement of people across countries have led to adoption of traditional health practices, once indigenous to a sect of population or country, by other populations outside its indigenous culture. If utilized properly, traditional medicine and health practices can be a source of income as has already been described in countries like India and China, where traditional health practices have evolved and developed over the years and are accepted the world over as established modes of alternative therapies. By the report “Traditional Medicine in Oman: Its Role in Ophthalmology”, three patients who were examined in the Ophthalmic department of a tertiary care teaching hospital in the Sultanate of Oman between 2003 and 2004, have been cured fully or partially.

Also, the traditional medicinal systems of various civilizations are well known to use herbal remedies for various ocular conditionsPlant derived compounds came to ocular use in the last century in which cocainephysostigminepilocarpine and atropine are still holding a place in modern ophthalmology practice. The traditional knowledge available at different populations are of current interest among researchers throughout the world for finding new therapeutic modalities for ocular disorders like glaucomauveitiscataract and neovascular conditions etc.

MARKET ANALYSIS

Glaucoma 2018 market research:

After a huge downfall of the market during economic drain in 2008-2009, ophthalmology market is catching up to get back to the normal as there is a rapid growth in population resulting in increased number of patients with eye diseases and the incidence of cataract and glaucoma are increasing every year.

According to a study it is estimated that around 48% of world population is blind because of cataract and more than 60 million people suffer from glaucoma and it is estimated that the number would rise to 80 million by the end of 2020. Ageing population is the leading cause for refractive error problem in countries like the USA and Europe, it is noticed that the refractive error problem is mostly seen in population ageing more than 40 years.

 

Importance and scope:

The research report categorizes the global ophthalmology drugs and devices market into diagnostic devices, surgical devices, vision care and drugs.  All these markets are broken down into segments and sub-segments, providing exhaustive value analysis for 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as forecast up to 2017. Each of the devices market is comprehensively analyzed at a granular level by geography (North America, Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World) to provide in-depth information on the global scenario. However, the drugs market is analyzed in the U.S., Europe, Japan, Asia, and Rest of the world.

Glaucoma 2018 enhances ophthalmic education to improve eye care to contribute to preservation and restoration of vision around the world.

Ophthalmology continues to be an attractive field of medicine with great opportunities.

  • 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision.
  • About 90% of the world’s visually impaired live in low-income settings.
  • 82% of people living with blindness are aged 50 and above.
  • Globally, uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of moderate and severe visual impairment; cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in middle- and low-income countries.
  • The number of people visually impaired from infectious diseases has reduced in the last 20 years according to global estimates work.
  • 80% of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured.
  • Cataract removal is the most commonly performed ophthalmic surgical operation.

 

Why Bali, Indonesia?

Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, this is one of the world's most popular island destinations and one which consistently wins travel awards. With its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colourful, deeply spiritual and unique culture, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. It is known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as Cliffside Uluwatu Temple. Bali is a popular tourist destination, which has seen a significant rise in tourists since the 1980s. Tourism-related business makes up 80% of its economy. It is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. ‘Paradise on Earth’ and the ‘Island of the Gods’ are just not simply the names given to Bali, these names personify the beauty of Bali. Bali never ceases to charm with its diverse natural treasures. Trip to Bali can be filled with culture, nature, art, the spiritual or, even better, all of these. Bali received the Best Island award from Travel and Leisure in 2010. Bali won because of its attractive surroundings (both mountain and coastal areas), diverse tourist attractions, excellent international and local restaurants, and the friendliness of the local people. According to BBC Travel released in 2011, Bali is one of the World’s Best Islands, ranking second after Santorini, Greece. The Island of the Gods offers great beaches, countless waves for surfing and wonderful natural sites to visit and explore colorful ceremonies, and gifted artists. There is an unbelievably wide range of hotels and accommodation, restaurants, spas and world-class activities and shopping - all within close distance and at very fair prices. Bali is famous for its kaleidoscopic sunsets which arrive on cue at around 6pm every day of the year. Apart from the wealth of Bali attractions, from the spectacular beaches of Kuta, Nusa Dua and Seminyak, or Ubud’s cultural heart and picturesque terraced rice fields, the northeastern coastal towns and Lombok Island are hidden gems awaiting discovery.

Bali has something to offer a very broad market of visitors from young back-packers right through to the super rich and stipulated as the perfect vision for 18th Global Ophthalmology, Optometry and Glaucoma Conference 2018.

The ASIAN countries are considered by some as the most successful regional association in the developing world. In 2011, ASIAN countries amounted for 3.11% of global GDP and had 8.59% of global population. Today, Indonesia has nearly 10,000 eye care centers including hospitals and optical shops combined.

Indonesian Eye care:

Indonesia's blindness rate is 1.47% of its population, equaling about 3,00,000 people. Ninety percent of those, or about 270,000 people, are blind due to cataract. With only 1,00,000 procedures being performed annually, there is a backlog of nearly 170,000 procedures each year. Officials have not estimated how long the annual backlog has existed, but they do cite several key reasons for its existence.

Figure 4: Comparison of blindness status in Indonesia, Bangladesh, India and Thailand

 

Indonesia, all together has nearly 10,000 Eye care centres including optical shops, eye hospitals and clinics. The three major Eye care brands in Indonesia are Into, Visine, and Rohto with combined value of 84% share of total value sales in 2012.
