Ophthalmologists have deep interest in diabetes and often participate in the frequent conferences where diverse aspects of the disease are thrashed out. One such recent conference was a combined meeting of the Irish Ophthalmological Society and the British Diabetic Association held in Dublin (April, 1963). Another was a Symposium on Microangiopathy held under the auspices of the American Diabetes Association (Cherry Hill, NJ, October, 1963).
