The theme of ARVO-Asia 2017 is Bridging disciplines and disparities: Connecting eye research with health outcomes. Collaborations across research disciplines, amongst countries and between the laboratory and the clinic are becoming increasingly important in times of expanding public health needs and tightening resources. It is important and timely that we discuss how we can build bridges that ensure our discoveries translate into effective prevention, diagnosis and treatments for patients with eye disease across the globe. ARVO-Asia 21017 will feature an exciting program of plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, papers and posters, including the role of public health issues and infectious diseases in eye related conditions.
