Dr. Navero and Dr. Maseras participate in the Virtual Congress of the Societat Catalana d’Oftalmologia 2020

The 51st Congress of the Societat Catalana d’Oftalmologia (SCOFT) was held on November 26th, 27th and 28th, this year by telematic means. The congress was attended by numerous experts in ophthalmology, including Dr. José Manuel Navero and Dr. Xavier Maseras, members of the Department of Glaucoma and the Department of Retina and Vitreous of ICR respectively.

SCOFT treated multiple ocular pathologies

The program covered a wide range of ocular pathologies. Among these, highlights included personalization in the treatment of presbyopia, the new approach to dry eye inflammation, the current status of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma surgery.

There were also several presentations on diagnostic techniques and tests and the opportunity to discuss clinical cases of patients with strabismus or ocular pain.

Congress attendees also had the opportunity to hear clinical cases on glaucoma and retinal diseases, two of the most common eye problems in society. The lectures were given by ICR doctors José Manuel Navero and Xavier Maseras, experts in the field.

In Dr. Navero’s work, a case of a patient with high myopia and glaucoma was presented, one of the most difficult situations to treat in this department. The doctor, on this occasion, gave guidelines for the follow-up and treatment of the pathology.
