These ob- jectives are accomplished through both a collaborative Congress meeting occurring every 2 years (which began in 2017) and a peer-reviewed scientific and clinical pe- riodical. RWC seeks to provide the essential platform to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and best practices in retina on a global scale and includes practicing retina specialists, retina fellows, and residents. The goals of RWC are: To provide open access to retinal continuing medi- cal education; to improve patient care by providing a forum for education on the latest retina knowledge from experts around the world; to support a global scientific and clinical exchange on current retinal data and practice; to high- light innovation in retinal therapies and diagnostics; and to engage delegates from Retina Societies from around the world. GAP ANALYSIS Currently, there is no medical education conference that focuses entirely on retina practice from a global perspective. By uniting societies from around the globe, this conference provides a worldwide perspective focused on reti- nal medical education. As the burden of retinal diseases, including age-related macular degenera- tion and diabetic macular edema, continues to increase, there has also been tremendous advancement in the treatment and management of these diseases. Continual innovation in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of retinal diseases has contributed significantly to an increased need for continued edu- cation and the exchange of knowledge between members of the global retina community. The papers presented in this supplement highlight some of the progress being made in the treatment and management of these diseases. Rishi P.
