About YOURS

EURETINA established Young Retina Specialists (YOURS) in 2013, to represent the interests of younger members, who are under 40 years of age.

Our YOURS (Young Retina Specialists) initiative is one of the primary ways in which we encourage younger ophthalmologists in their retina careers and attract the next generation into the retina subspecialty. 

YOURS offers several benefits including three years of free membership.
