Dear Colleagues,

We take great pleasure in presenting to you the upcoming: 

Western Canada Retina Retreat 2019

Now in its 11th year, Western Canada Retina Retreat is Western Canada’s foremost annual conference for our retina specialist community. This year, for the first time, the Conference is taking place in beautiful Banff, Alberta! 

In keeping with our successful format, Western Canada Retina Retreat 2019 will provide a full-day forum for collegial group learning on current and emerging strategies in the diagnosis and management of retinal disorders. 

Our Planning Committee has once again assembled a robust program with a focus on interactive discussion of a range of interesting medical and surgical cases presented by our conference participants. As in previous years, all attendees will be required to submit and present a 10-minute retina-related case. Please be on the lookout for a challenging or interesting case that you can share with us!

Complementary to the case sessions, we are honoured to welcome our moderator, Phil Hooper, MD, and guest lecturer, 
Michel Eid Farah, MD, who will share with us their expert perspectives on the contemporary science and practice of ophthalmology. 

We trust you will find your experience at the Western Canada Retina Retreat 2019 to be informative and beneficial to your practice. Your participation will certainly contribute to making our 2019 conference the most successful to date. 

See you in Banff!
