On behalf of the Board and Officers of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Lisbon for the XXXV Congress of the ESCRS.
Our extensive scientific programme is aimed at cataract and refractive surgeons of all levels of experience, and includes numerous expert symposia and nearly 200 instructional and surgical skills training courses.
The 2017 Binkhorst Medal Lecture will be given by Boris Malyugin during the Opening Ceremony at 10.00 on Sunday morning and the title of his lecture is Cataract Surgery in High-Risk Eyes: Lessons Learned.
The Poster Village is a highly interactive area where papers are presented by the authors in an informal setting. It has proven very popular with delegates wishing to engage in direct discussion with their colleagues and is a key part of the scientific programme.
On Wednesday the Best of the Best review session will take a look at some of the most interesting ideas that will emerge over the coming days, and is the perfect way to round off the Congress. There are a number of sessions and courses aimed specifically at young ophthalmologists and these are highlighted in the YO track in the pocket programme.
Other highlighted programme tracks are Cataract Complications & Special Cases, Cornea, Glaucoma, Laser Refractive Surgery, Presbyopia and Symposia. With so much on offer it will be impossible to attend every session. However, if you log on to the Education Portal on the ESCRS website you can access the sessions and didactic courses on ESCRS On Demand and ESCRS iLearn, as well as discover a wide range of video content and other materials.
A scientific programme of this size requires a lot of planning, and I would like to thank the members of the Programme and Education committees for their continued hard work. I would also like to thank the individuals and other societies who have contributed to the organisation of a scientific session or course.
I hope you will find this Congress rewarding and enjoy your time in Lisbon.
