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 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 felt it was critical to continue to provide a forum in which scientific research could proceed and be shared globally. Our focus was to provide a robust and meaningful scientific exchange in a virtual format to help ensure the health and safety of all. A virtual event allowed for an expanded reach of the Annual Meeting to more people than ever, in real-time and asynchronously, with live chats that encouraged meaningful dialogue. You can still access the Annual Meeting platform, hosted on Pathable, to view the range of revolutionary research showcased at ARVO 2021. Access/registration is available to June 30.
