Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


We are pleased to announce and invite you to attend the 9th Annual Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology: Europe (COPHy EU), which will take place in Athens, Greece, March 22-24, 2018.


The great success of the previous eight COPHyEU Congresses, held across Europe in Prague, Barcelona, Istanbul, Budapest, Lisbon, Sorrento, Warsaw and Madrid, as well as the enthusiastic feedback received from the most recent Congresses, confirmed the need for proceeding with the 9th edition of this dynamic Congress.


COPHyEU in Athens again will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2017 and 2018 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to focus on Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, and will discuss controversies in other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis. Topics will include the treatment regimens and drug choices for retinal diseases such as diabetic macular edema or age-related macular degeneration, the role of anti-VEGF agents versus panretinal photocoagulation in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, the current management of corneal disease with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, and novel medical and surgical glaucoma management methods.


Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when data remain limited, through evidence-based medicine, including expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts.


We invite you to participate in the 9th COPHyEU Congress in Athens.


Sincerely, 

Prof. Anat Loewenstein

Prof. Neil Bressler
