So, the end result of all this research was to present our findings and conclusions at an international conference, which took place in Seattle, Washington in USA this year. The conference was called ARVO- Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. We were going to spend two fabulous days in Seattle…and the weather forecast promised beautiful warm sunny weather.
Everything… from the 16 hour flight to Seattle, our amazing hotel and interacting with a multitude of people at the conference was such a new, exciting experience. We stayed at the Pan-pacific hotel… in downtown Seattle. So we had the opportunity to do some sight-seeing and especially visit the famous Seattle Tower, relax on the lake-side and do some shopping at the renowned Pike Market.
The conference was held at the Washington Convention Center…which was also quite near our hotel. It was HUGE… and soo many people… apparently there were around 8000 doctors from all around the world. I met people from Australia to Brazil! Lots of people from Asia, Europe and of course North America. They all brought so many new innovative ideas, research and discoveries to the table… it was awe-inspiring.
