    The Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposium is a two day residential meeting which brings together basic scientists and clinicians to discuss a well-defined topic in detail under the chairmanship of leaders in that field. The purpose of the symposium is to take an aspect of ophthalmology, however small and interrogate it in depth so that those involved in basic science research can hear the views of clinicians and as importantly clinicians can come to understand the science behind their practice.
