Athens Awaits You
It is with great pleasure that I announce and invite you to the 12th Congress of International Society of Dacryology & Dry Eye, scheduled to take place in Athens from 5-7 October 2017.
This triennial world congress will gather the most prominent experts in the field of Dacryology and Dry Eyes.
Tearing is a multifactorial symptom that can be ascribed to the Eyelids, Lacrimal Gland, Thyroid Eye Disease and the ocular surface. Dry Eye is one of the most common and serious eye diseases in the everyday practice in Ophthalmology.
Ophthalmologists from all over the world gather in order to update themselves on the latest advances of tears and lacrimal diseases encompassing basic and clinical aspects.
The scientific program is designed to include lectures from world-known experts, video assisted surgical techniques and the thematic Round Table discussions. These modes of learning are structured to enhance the knowledge and clinical skills to provide better care to our patients.
What better place could we think other than Athens for this scientific treat!
Athens, the historical capital of Europe and Medicine is the perfect site to bridge all colleagues from Europe, Asia America and all parts of the world.
This scientific gala promises to be an unforgettable experience of knowledge and exchange of experiences. We at ISDDE are looking forward to receive your abstracts for the presentations and posters at the Congress.
Looking forward to welcoming you all in Athens!
