    Advancements and cutting-edge science abound at the XXXV Congress of ESCRS



    Monday 9th October

    Exhibition Hall

    The exhibition schedule will be open from 9am until 5.30pm on Monday; however, hours are subject to change.


    Building a New Eye


    Tissue-engineering, regeneration and reconstruction will be the themes running throughout an informative main symposium on Monday, a “controversial yet innovative” session, Dr Fazio believes, whose reigns have rightly been handed to “experienced duo” Dr D Epstein and Dr Boris Malyugin of Russia to chair.


    Combined Symposium of Cataract & Refractive Societies

    4.15 pm–6.15 pm

    Complicated cataract surgery will be examined during this session, which will be chaired by the UK’s Dr David Spalton. The range of complex cases described will include white mature cataracts; pterygium; dense brunescent cataract; and pseudo lens exfoliation. Intrascleral haptic fixation and repairing iris defects in eyes with cataracts will also be among the challenges addressed. Moderators for this programme are Drs Graham Barrett of Australia, William De La Pena of the USA and E Holland, also of the USA. Interspersed throughout will be short discussion breaks. This will be another interesting symposium, according to Dr Fazio, who expects to witness here “the merging of experiences and practice patterns from all over the world”.


    Poster Sessions

    Various times

    Moderated and presented poster sessions will be held at various times throughout the day, beginning at 9.30am with three morning posters on: ‘IOL Power Calculation & Paediatric’; ‘Cornea III’; and ‘Quality of Vision & Miscellaneous’. From 2pm, ‘New and Interesting’ will be the focus of the moderated poster session, while presented posters will cover ‘Complications Management in Cataract Surgery’; ‘Intraocular Refractive Results’; and ‘Posterior Segment’.
