CESARE FORLINI a co founder, an incredible surgeon, our teacher and our best friend is no longer with us. We will surely miss him, yet his memory will continue to inspire us. And we will keep to have his name in our organizers list αnd organizing THE FRIENDS OF CESARE FORLINI VIT CLUB
Since we will have this year 24 GREAT TEACHERS in SURGICAL AND MEDICAL RETINA from ALL OVER THE WORLD FROM CHINA TO BRASIL AND 15 OF THE BEST GREEK INSTUCTORS AND TEACHERS FOR ONLY 35 STUDENT PARTICIPANTS SURGEONS for a WHOLE WEEK THAT IS WHY THIS YEAR WE WERE AWARDED TO GIVE 29 EUROPEAN CME

Still keeping the core of training We are very proud of the progress we have made over the past 7 years. The idea of our mentor Giuseppe Guarnaccia started in Chalkidiki with a small gathering of friends from around the world and has grown to a 15 surgical position Vitrectomy Wet Lab Including The ADVANCED TRUE TO LIFE WET LAB.

Vitrectomy and Buckle current evolution surgery, Vitrectomy For Cataract Surgeons, BISOFT technique for Dropped Nucleus and Scleral sutureles fixated IOL are all revolutionary methods that will be taught during this year’s TVRS.
Medical Retina in Lectures and dry labs will be covering most of the week’s morning time, whereas the latest in Retina treatment will be presented by Professor Bandelo, our co-organizer from San Raffaele University in Milan.
This year Angio OCT Dry Lab by L Mavroudis will address all the new developments in Retina Diagnosis. A new name and a new land to explore. One that we have never seen before.
From now on there will be a key speaker for a CESARE FORLINI LECTURE to take place every year. In 2017 will be given by Prof FRANCESCO BANDELLO
Added to the advantages of TVRS is our Co-organizer L. Zografos who will give lectures on Eye tumors diagnosis and treatment.
Every evening a most interactive dinner by the sea will take place, giving the opportunity to the participants to get to know our faculty teachers.
Last but not least, the J.D.Scott award will be given to the best participant in the evaluation test.
A downside of TVRS is the limited number of participants that can be accepted to receive this intensive training by more than 25 International Teachers and Instructors from all over the world and at the same time to keep the overall cost as low as possible.
Hence, I would like to thank the industry that kept us afloat and going in such difficult years.
We, at TVRS, promise not to compromise or reduce the quality of the program for the wrong side of cost efficiency
