On March 16-17, the 15th All-Russian Scientific and Practical Conference with international participation "Modern Technologies for the Treatment of Vitreoretinal Pathology" was held. Previously, this annual event was held in the Interbranch Scientific and Technical Complex (ISTC) "Eye Microsurgery", Moscow, but in 2017 the conference went beyond the center and was held in Sochi. In the city on the Black Sea coast the leading experts in the field of ophthalmology from Russia and abroad have gathered to exchange new knowledge and share their experience with colleagues.

The conference opening ceremony began with the presentation of the General Director of ISTC “Eye Microsurgery”, Professor Alexander Chukhraev. He noted that the 15th conference on the treatment of vitreoretinal pathology is taking place in the year of the 90th anniversary of Academician S.N. Fedorov, and this is a great event not only for Russian, but also for world ophthalmology. He expressed his gratitude to Professor Valery Zakharov for his dedication to the ideas of S.N. Fedorov. Professor B. Malyugin noted that interest to the conference grows from year to year, and this event attracted an unprecedented number of participants – for about 900 people. People from all corners Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Montenegro and China came to the conference.

The "live surgery" became the decoration of the conference. In the online mode the most complex surgeries performed by the best eye surgeons of Russia and Belgium were shown directly from the operating units of ISTC "Eye Microsurgery" and the hospital at the University of Leuven (Belgium).

The conference program included discussions of a wide range of problems: diagnostics, surgical treatment of retinal and vitreous diseases, and retinopathy of prematurity, cancer; great attention was paid to the peculiarities of laser treatment of the retina and vitreous body.
