A message from our President and General Secretary 
Dear Members of ECLSO, dear colleagues, dear friends,

ECLSO aims to promote continuous education and information of eyecare specialists interested in contact lenses and ocular surface. Our target audiences are therefore ophthalmologists and optometrists with an interest in these topics, including young ophthalmologists and residents in training, as well as allied health care personnel.

Contactology is an integral part of ophthalmological practice. Recent developments in the field of myopia management – a topic all ophthalmologists are confronted with – highlight the fact that medical contact lens approaches are an integral part of ophthalmology.

Not every ophthalmologist has to become a contact lens expert but every colleague must be aware of what is going on in the field.

That is where ECLSO wants to make a difference by organising meeting like the Prague Symposium, the bi-annual Major Conference, April 26-27 2024 and joint meetings with the National Ophthalmological Societies. Thanks to the continued support of our loyal supporters, we will present a lively 2024 ELSO Symposium of high scientific standards. 

ECLSO sincerely welcomes you to join your National Group or to become an individual ECLSO member. For more information visit the Membership page >>.
