Track 1: Neuro Ophthalmology 

Neuro ophthalmology is the speciality that deals with ophthalmic diseases with neurological problems and various optic nerve disorders. We use almost half of the brain for vision-related activities, including sight and moving the eyes. Neuro-ophthalmology, a subspecialty of both neurology and ophthalmology, requires specialized training and expertise in problems of the eye, brain, nerves and muscles. Neuro-ophthalmologists have unique abilities to evaluate patients from the neurologic, ophthalmologic, and medical standpoints to diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems

Track 2: Perception and Visual Cognition

Perception and Visual cognition are based on the methods that incorporate psychophysics, eye movements, electrophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging, as well as computational modelling. Visual search, spatial vision, perceptual organization, object recognition, semantic processing and categorization, face perception, visual neglect, visual agnosia, perception for action, visual working memory, inhibition and cognitive control, reading, and social vision.

Track 3:  Pediatric Ophthalmology

Pediatric Ophthalmology is a sub-speciality of ophthalmology concerned with eye diseases, visual development, and vision care in children. Pediatric ophthalmologists focus on the development of the visual system and the various diseases that disrupt visual development in children. Pediatric ophthalmologists also have expertise in managing the various ocular diseases that affect children.

Track 4:  Infant vision 

Your child's vision development begins before birth. From the day your baby's born, her eyes will aid her physical, mental, and emotional development by allowing her to take in information – a little bit at first, and eventually much more – about the world around her. The visual system of a newborn infant takes some time to develop. In the first week of life, babies don't see much detail. Their first view of the world is indistinct and only in shades of gray.

Track 6: Retinal care

The Retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye on the inside. It is located near the optic nerve. The purpose of the retina is to receive light that the lens has focused, convert the light into neural signals, and send these signals on to the brain for visual recognition.

Track 7: Scrutiny of Visual Sensory System

Despite advances in neurodiagnostic imaging and other techniques, examination of the afferent visual sensory system is still the core of the neuro-ophthalmologic examination. A thorough refraction is an essential part of all clinical neuro ophthalmologic examinations. Confrontation visual fields should be part of every afferent system examination. The relationship between the physical properties of light and perceptual and behavioural responses is known as visual psychophysics, which serves as the foundation for the clinical assessment of visual function. The determination of whether a patient’s visual field improves worsens, or remains stable over time is the most difficult aspect of visual field interpretation. Many attempts have been made to investigate visual field function using evoked potentials to visual stimuli.

  • Track 7-2Pulfrich Phenomenon
  • Track 7-3Perimetry and Visual Field Testing
  • Track 7-4Contract Sensitivity

  • Track 7-6Visual Evoked Potentials (VEG)

Track 8: Eye Health

Your Eyes are an important part of your Health. Most people rely on their eyes to see and make sense of the world around them. Low vision and blindness have dire effects on individuals, families, and communities. These effects range from a decrease in quality of life and increased mortality to large-scale economic consequences. Primary eye care (PEC) is a broad concept, encompassing the prevention of potentially blinding eye diseases through primary health care (PHC). You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, really be sure.

  • Track 8-2Poverty and Blindness
  • Track 8-3Eye drops and oral medication
  • Track 8-4Immune Therapy in Ophthalmology

Track 9: Ocular and Neurologics Evaluation

Incomplete assessment of patients during routine examinations and the failure to correlate symptoms with signs are probably more common reasons for missed neuro-ophthalmic diagnoses than the potential subtlety of neuro-ophthalmic signs. Suggestions for incorporating a more thorough, efficient eye examination in routine practice are included in the Examination efficiency.  There are several causes of decreased vision following a neurological event (such as acquired brain injury). It is important to determine the cause of the decreased vision as it will allow the doctor to discuss prognosis and potential for improvement.

Track 10: Cosmetic /Aesthetic ophthalmology

Primary training in Ophthalmology brings in all the concepts of micro-incisions, fine suturing and working under microscopes. This comes as an advantage of Cosmetic Surgery in Ophthalmology. Moreover since majority of aging changes occur around the eyes, an ophthalmic plastic surgeon can better address these issues through hidden incisions behind the eyelid. The goals of cosmetic ophthalmology are to reduce the signs of ageing and improve facial features through both surgical and non-surgical techniques, wrinkles, drooping eyelids, darkness under the eyes and loose puffy skin as well as unwanted hair and veins can be treated successfully.

Track 11: Optometry and Vision science

Vision science is the scientific study of vision. Vision science encompasses all studies of vision, such as how human and non-human organisms process visual information, how conscious visual perception works in humans, how to exploit visual perception for effective communication, and how artificial systems can do the same tasks. Optometry is a healthcare profession that is autonomous, educated, and regulated (licensed/registered), and optometrists are the primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction and dispensing, detection/diagnosis and management of disease in the eye, and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system.

Track 12: Vision Science and Technologies of Ophthalmology
Vision science is the scientific study of vision. The visual framework is delightfully made to transmit data of the outside world to visual preparing and subjective focuses in the cerebrum. The premise of comprehension is the cerebrum's capacity to synchronize all the electrical movement it is continually accepting and producing. The essential goal of visual neuroscience is to perceive how neural activity brings about visual acknowledgment, and furthermore hones dependent on vision.

Track 13: Neuroscience of Visual Impairment:
Our brain only needs a split second to determine what we’re seeing. The area in our brain that can categorize these visual observations so quickly is the so-called ventral-temporal cortex, the visual brain. It is found that blind individuals also use the map in the visual brain. Their visual brain responds in a different way to each category. This means that blind people, too, use this part of the brain to differentiate between categories, even though they’ve never had any visual input.

The goal is to allow Ophthalmology faculty and students to gain experience presenting research to an academic audience. It remains mission of Ophthalmic Researchers and Scholars  to carry out ground breaking research on the development, structure, and function of the visual system and uphold our position as a centre of excellence. Through this initiative research efforts have translated into clinical trials to prevent, treat and cure ocular diseases.
