ARVO 2021 Update

ARVO leadership has closely monitored the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the eye and vision community. Due to the pervasive spread of the virus, in addition to limitations on the venue capacity and strict travel restrictions in place by worldwide governments and our members’ universities and institutions, the Board of Trustees has decided to move the ARVO 2021 Annual Meeting to a fully virtual event. The health, safety and well-being of the ARVO global community continues to be our highest priority. During these challenging times, we feel it is critical to continue to provide a forum in which scientific research can proceed and be shared globally. ARVO is focused on providing a robust and meaningful scientific exchange in a virtual format to help ensure the health and safety of all. A virtual event allows for an expanded reach of the Annual Meeting to more people than ever, in real-time and asynchronously, with live chats that encourage meaningful dialogue. Registration for the 2021 Annual Meeting is now open . Additional details regarding the virtual event will be provided soon.
