About the Programme:
Ophthall 2022 is the fifth edition India’s only Practice Development Conference for Ophthalmologists, and Eye Hospital Managers. Ophthall 2022 would offer an insight into Practice Development and focus on business of Ophthalmology which regular conferences rarely do.

This practical two-day meet will be a knowledge sharing platform for Ophthalmologists to learn the essential skills of practice development from more than 40 Expert practice development specialists (Industry Experts and Ophthalmologists)
Ophthall 2022 would follow an unconference format and would break all traditional conference formats.
