Join the 2022 EGS Congress to get a full update on all matters regarding glaucoma management, from epidemiology and basic science to diagnosis and medical and surgical therapy!
We will be delighted to have with us a large panel of internationally renowned speakers who are recognized experts in the field, the largest group of invited faculty compared to previous EGS meetings.
Each new EGS Congress builds on past successes: newly-established standards, a varied and stimulating scientific programme and a wide range of instructional courses pitched at different levels to meet varying needs in our audience are the main features of our meetings.
During the pandemic EGS intensively worked on building new EGS projects of strategic importance in the field of glaucoma, namely the Real World Data Project the Surgery project, the EGS glaucoma fellowship project and the project targeting outcomes. Concepts, developments, and innovative approaches raised from these projects have fed into the program.
We are particularly pleased to announce, for the first time in the program, the EGS surgery day adding one full day to the usual length of the biennial meeting. This additional surgery day will address the current and modern state of the art in surgical management of glaucoma including the many challenges of new innovative surgeries.
