The Barcelona Macula Foundation received a visit from a delegation from the Official College of Opticians and Optometrists of Catalonia (COOOC) on Tuesday. The meeting enabled discussion of the European research projects and the latest campaigns in which the BMF has participated. The COOOC visitors also collected accurate information on the clinical trials campaign initiated by the Foundation in close collaboration with the Institut de la Màcula.
