PLEASE CLICK THE BUTTON “PROGRAMME” to check the full updated list of ECLSO speakers and their presentations during the 49th Conference in Paris.


On Friday September 18th you will find the latest on Keratoconus treatment (corneal crosslinking, specialty lenses, scleral lenses and surgery for ectasia), followed by lectures on Ocular Surface Disease and Treatment of Dry Eye.

That very day an initiation course will be organised (in French) by the French Contact Lens Society (SFOALC) for residents in training and young ophthalmologists wishing to acquire basic knowledge about contactology.

In the afternoon a survey will be presented of the most interesting topics introduced at other international symposia and congresses.

The day will end on the attribution of the Fick-Kalt-Müller Award and last but not least, a Welcome Cocktail.

Throughout the whole Saturday September 19th, ECLSO brought together a unique European platform about the state-of-the-art on MYOPIA MANAGEMENT.

Ranging from a survey of evidence based approaches to myopia treatment options to a resume of the IMI White Papers, this platform will inform you thoroughly on the subject.

In the late afternoon Ebru Toker (Istanbul, Turkey), former ECLSO Vice-President, will present the Kersley Lecture.

Please note EACCME accreditation has been obtained.

In the course of both congress days, ophthalmologists and contact lens specialists are invited to present their free papers and posters which will be selected by the ECLSO Scientific Committee.

We are also greatly indebted to our Major Sponsors, who will organise their sessions specifically about the main topics of the Congress.

Please send in your abstracts through this website now!! Registration is open from March 2020.
