Dr. Gaurav K. Shah and Dr. Michael M. Altaweel founded the OIC twelve years ago, and many clinicians cite the conference as the highlight of the AAO Annual Meeting. This program is an invitation only conference that attracts leaders in the retina community. The presentations cover both medical and surgical subjects encompassing a wide range of topics.
In 2011, the summer component of OIC was started in collaboration with the Western Association for Vitreoretinal Education (WAVE), with alternating meetings held in Colorado (OIC/WAVE) and Hawaii (WAVE/OIC).
The 2020 OIC/WAVE meeting will be held in Vail, Colorado and details can be found under the OIC/WAVE section.
