It will soon be time for the FIL – Feira Internacional de Lisboa in Lisbon, Portugal to open its doors to the ophthalmic community for the 35th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS), taking place between the 7th and 11th October 2017.
A range of symposia, poster sessions, instructional courses and workshops will provide delegates with this much awaited, once-yearly opportunity to learn about the newest and most exciting developments in the industry, whilst a daily exhibition will showcase examples of the latest technologies in ophthalmology.
And when it’s time to take a break from the meeting, attendees can set their sights on the beautiful and historical coastal city of Lisbon, exploring the plethora of world-class restaurants, perhaps sampling the port, and indulging in the wide-ranging cultural offerings.
In Ophthalmology Times Europe’s exclusive preview of the ESCRS, we have asked two of our respected Editorial Advisory Board members, Dr Paulo Fazio, head of the refractive surgery service of the Centro Cantanese Medicina e Chirugia in Catania, Italy, and Dr Albert Augustin, professor of ophthalmology and chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Klinikum Karlsruhe, Germany, to share their recommendations for the event, to help you make the most of your time there.
