In partnership with the University of Virginia Department of Ophthalmology, IRIS hosts conferences to help medical professionals learn about the vast problem of preventable blindness in the developing world and to encourage these professionals to get involved. The conferences feature speakers from around the globe who have experience in international ophthalmology. In addition, IRIS sponsors physicians from developing nations so they may participate in these conferences as well as take the opportunity to work with subspecialists at the University of Virginia.
