Vitreq attends 30th DOC meeting in Nürnberg
18 May, 17
Vitreq was pleased to participate actively in the 30th DOC anniversary meeting in Nürnberg, Germany, held May 11th – 13th. Vitreq had an attractive booth in a prominent location close to the main entrance, and many surgeons came to see our range of products for VR surgery. They were particularly interested to have a first look at the new Vitreq products, which were shown for the first time in Germany, such as the new generation of directional laser probes, illuminated directional laser probes, light fibers and the new Vitreq Tissue Manipulators.
The DOC (Internationaler Kongress der Deutschen Ophthalmochirurgen) is the largest ophthalmic congress in German-speaking countries with a special focus on ophthalmic surgery.
On the booth Vitreq showed also a basic set up for an in-office IVI Centre using the Operio air cleaning system was also shown, which can be used to establish a state-of-the-art centre for intravitreal injections.
The congress program not only included scientific lectures, live surgeries and wet-labs but also controversial debates on the future of Ophthalmology.
The Vitreq Team is looking forward to attend the next DOC meeting, which will be held from June 14 – 16, 2018 and will once again take place in Nürnberg.
