Early birds

For many attendees the meeting starts before the meeting starts, in a manner of speaking. That is to say, the subspecialty sessions begin in advance of the general conference, offering a smorgasbord of debate and didactic material in the areas of refractive surgery, retina, glaucoma, and paediatrics. Your EuroTimes reporter spent most of the time camping at the refractive subspecialty day sessions. This consisted of two full days of lectures and debates covering all aspects of the field. The sessions provided a great overview of current debates in many controversial areas including paediatric refractive surgery, refractive surgery on keratoconus suspect eyes, problems with multifocal IOLs, femtosecond laser approaches to cataract surgery, intrastromal implants, and the latest info on collagen cross-linking.
