Welcome on the ECLSO website

Dear members of ECLSO, dear friends,


ECLSO Website update - Important News

  • Some more information about our full ECLSO congress in Paris, on 18 and 19 September 2020, in the Novotel Tour Eiffel, 61 Quai de Grenelle, 75015 Paris.
    The title of the congress will be “European Conference on Myopia Control”. Subtitles are : “Ocular surface pathology”, “Soft contact lenses and contact lenses for presbyopia” and “Specialty lenses”. Apart from inviting leading world experts in these topics, we will concentrate on inviting European and French young professionals as speakers in order to emphasize our mission to involve young ophthalmologists and eye care professionals in our Society. 
    It is also our intention to organise a “one day instructional course” in French and apply for EACCME accreditation. We will closely co-operate with SFOALC (Société Française d’Opthalmologistes Adaptateurs de Lentilles de Contact) and BCLA (British Contact Lens Association) in order to draw up a lively scientific programme.
    Thanks to our loyal dedicated sponsors, we will be able to present to you a lively meeting of high scientific standards and an attractive social programme as well.
  • The Austrian ECLSO member Society “Austrian Ophthalmologists’ Association” invited us to join their upcoming Autumn Congress in Salzburg on November 22nd and 23rd, 2019. Their programme features presentations about specialty lenses, myopia control, use of OCT in contact lens fitting, contact lenses after surgical procedures, among many others.

    Thank you, Dr Gabriele Seher and Dr Peter Gorka, for informing us!
On October 19th 2019, the ECLSO Praesidium will convene in Paris to discuss the ECLSO full Congress Programme in detail. After this meeting we will adapt the website and inform you about our 2020 meeting in the Novotel Tour Eiffel on September 18th and 19th next year. And of course, you are warmly invited to send questions and/or suggestions to our Secretary-General, Dr Ömür Uçakhan! 
Have a nice summer!
