About the event
An event for people with experience of wet macular degeneration to share local research on how new technology might support future services.
National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) are hosting an event on Wednesday 4th October from 10am - 4.30pm at The Boiler House, Newcastle University, NE1 7RU.
The event is for people who are affected by wet macular degeneration and those supporting them.
The day will focus on local research seeing how new technology could use eye photos to help plan injection treatment for individuals and improve their experience of clinic visits. Two breaks with lunch and refreshments will split the day into three parts looking at what opportunities there are to improve current care, what this new technology can do and how we might best use it to benefit people with wet macular degeneration.
There will be plenty of time set aside for discussions and questions. There will also be talks and discussions from people living with macular degeneration, ophthalmologists innovating macular degeneration care and representatives from the Macular Society and NIHR. The aim is to give you a wider sense of research to improve macular degeneration care and how and why you might get involved more with these communities and activities locally.
