Paris welcomes delegates to the 10th EURETINA Congress and XXVIII ESCRS Congress

Thousands of delegates have arrived in Paris, France, for the 10th EURETINA Congress and XXVIII ESCRS Congress.

In a special guest editorial in September's EuroTimes Béatrice Cochener MD, president of the French Society of Ophthalmology (Société Française d’Ophtalmologie – SFO) welcomed delegates to both meetings.

"Outstanding scientific programmes are planned, with numerous lectures, presentations, courses, posters and videos. Leading experts of these two sub-specialities (or “hyper”-specialities), will present the latest scientific knowledge in research and state-of-the-art of ophthalmology,” she said.

“This 'ecumenical' pursuit towards reliable standards of treatment in medical science, the importation of knowledge and skills through modern methods and the rational policy in affording care services, is an important point that ophthalmologists of different expertise are striving for,” said Prof Cochener.

EuroTimes is offering delegates a bumper 6o-page issue of Europe’s leading ophthalmology magazine. Eight thousand copies of the issue will be inserted in delegates' bags at the conferences.
