The event was hosted at the Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli, which attracted 119 Ophthalmologists and was live streamed to an audience of 37 Ophthalmologists in Benghazi’s Berenice Hotel. 

This launch event consisted of four talks by Libyan Ophthalmologists Dr Fathi Zenbil, Dr Wafa Qsoda, Dr Abdulraouf Hnidi and Dr Khalifa Alswidi. These were followed by a presentation on Age Related Macular Degeneration by Mr Mario Vella Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology Mater Dei Hospital, Malta.
