Dear Friends and Colleagues:
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the Fourth Annual Sonoma Eye Meeting that will take place at the beautiful Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn located in Sonoma Country, California from April 3 to 5, 2020.
As the role of inflammation has been unveiled and solidified across different segments of ophthalmic diseases, from cornea and external diseases, to uvea, retina and vitreous, and to orbit and optic nerve, 2020 Sonoma Eye will again bring together distinguished clinician scientists of different expertise to discuss how inflammation plays a role, peripheral or critical, in the pathogenesis of various ophthalmic diseases from dry eyes to choroiditis, ulcerative keratitis to diabetic macular edema, thyroid eye diseases to giant cell arteritis, glaucoma to macular degeneration. The Scientific Programs will also feature advances in the management of ophthalmic diseases that involve inflammation, including the development of new therapeutic options, targeting inflammatory pathways combined with others such as angiogenesis and vascular adhesion. In addition, the 2020 C. Stephen Foster, MD Lecture at Sonoma Eye will be delivered by a distinguished clinician scientist.
Following the tremendous success of the 2017, 2018, and 2019 meetings, the 2020 Sonoma Eye Meeting will continue to foster and encourage much discussions among authorities in the fields and attendees as we expect much learning and exchange of knowledge to occur throughout the various sessions. In addition, we also dedicate time to less formal yet productive activities for us and our families in fabulous Sonoma Country. Special rates for accommodations have been arranged with The Fairmont Sonoma Inn.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us at the Fourth Sonoma Eye Meeting in April 2020!
