About the Meeting

A message from meeting organizers, Drs. Charlie Barr, Don D'Amico, Szilard Kiss, Mike Lambert, and Craig Sklar

Since our first meeting in July of 1986, Nantucket Retina has offered attendees an informal forum for active, open, and innovative discussions between younger members of the retina community and senior retina specialists, joined by a select group of talented representatives from companies with vitreoretinal expertise. Vitreoretinal colleagues are welcome to join the meeting as well.

Meeting Format:

In our continuing efforts to ensure the most engaging and lively exchange of ideas, the format of the meeting will provide for physician and fellow participants to present a 15-minute paper on an interesting aspect of retinal diseases. (Corporate participants are also encouraged to speak during the meeting: each company is allotted a 10-minute window to present on a topic of its choosing.) The focus may be original scientific work, a case report, experience with a new surgical technique or instrument, or even a straightforward thematic question of interest. We will select most but not all of the submitted abstracts, and then structure the program to provide plenty of time for lively discussion around each topic. Please feel free to contact us (NantucketRetina@gmail.com) if you would like to have our thoughts about a topic you might present. 

As in years past, all participants and guests are encouraged to attend the welcome reception at the White Elephant Hotel on Wednesday evening, August 12th. The Thursday and Friday meeting sessions will follow a morning schedule, leaving the afternoons free for you to explore the island at your leisure.  On Thursday, August 13th, we invite you to join us for a traditional New England clambake that the entire family will enjoy. The following evening, Friday, August 14th, we hope you will join us for cocktails followed by dinner at a local restaurant in town. 

Your registration fee will include participation in the reception, meeting, and clambake. Supplemental arrangements for spouses/children/guests for the clambake, and for all participants at the Friday dinner party, are listed on the registration form. In order to keep this meeting small and informal, participation is limited to 45 registrants. Registration, abstract, and fees must be completed by June 20, 2020 to reserve your spot.
