Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

We look forward to welcoming you to Nice and to the next European Glaucoma Society Congress in June 2014.

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.

An extensive array of scienti­fic posters as well as Special Interest Groups and a vast exhibition add to the variety of this well established scientific gathering that has been able to attract trainees, general ophthalmologists and glaucomatologists alike. Our friendly, informal, multi-cultural environment encourages networking, sharing and exchanges.

Nice is but one of the pearls of the sunny French Riviera offering plenty of possibilities for your free time: from browsing for antiques, to sunbathing to strolling through the old town or along the world famous Proménade des Anglais, Nice has something for everyone.

Nice 2014 promises to be another exciting meeting we hope you will want to attend and enjoy to the fullest. Your active participation will make it worthwhile.

Prof. Carlo Enrico Traverso 
EGS President
Prof. Anja Tuulonen
EGS Vice President
