The aim of the conference was to facilitate the exchange of experiences, research, and ideas in the emerging field of tele-ophthalmology for ophthalmologists, clinicians in other fields, and industry professionals. Participants explored cutting-edge topics in tele-ophthalmology, artificial intelligence, and the use of technology to improve access to care and healthcare outcomes. The comments that follow have resonance throughout the world of blindness prevention. It is a pleasure to make them available to all.
