The overall goal is to Bring together every individual involved in the Ophthalmic Industry. From doctors to patients, a collaboration of ideas and opinions that will help advance and increase innovation in the Eye Surgical Industry.

Again with all sharing in knowledge as such with the patient involved, the understanding of how research and tests via ophthalmology can help will grow.
