WELCOME

Fall 2022

 

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

 

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the Sixth Annual Sonoma Eye Meeting that will take place at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn located in San Diego, California from March 16 to19, 2023.  Since it will be our Sixth anniversary meeting, we have decided to host our 2023 Sonoma Eye in America’s Finest City!
 
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, 2023 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 eye to choroiditis, ulcerative keratitis to diabetic macular edema, thyroid eye diseases to giant cell arteritis, glaucoma to neovascular macular degeneration, retinal vasculitis to geographic atrophy. 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 2023 C. Stephen Foster, MD Lecture at Sonoma Eye will again be delivered by a distinguished clinician scientist.      

 
Following the tremendous success of the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020-2021 (Virtual), and 2022 meetings, the 2023 Sonoma Eye Meeting will continue to foster and encourage many discussions among authorities in the fields and attendees as we expect tremendous learning and exchange of knowledge to occur throughout the various sessions.  In addition, we also dedicate time to less formal yet productive team building and networking activities for us and our families in fabulous San Diego! Special rates for accommodation have been arranged with the Rancho Bernardo Inn.


We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us at the Sixth Sonoma Eye Meeting in March 2023!  Same Meeting ... New City!

 

With warmest regards,
