WELCOME

Dear Colleagues,

The Board of the Greek Glaucoma Society welcomes you to the on-demand website of the 22th Congress of Glaucoma, created in collaboration with mData under the auspices of the European Glaucoma Society.

Glaucoma is the world's second leading cause of blindness and unfortunately remains an underdiagnosed disease that often troubles in the way of treatment. In our country, at least 200,000 people suffer from glaucoma, of which half do not know it, and every day hundreds of thousands of people with suspected glaucoma worry about whether and when they will develop the disease.

These data make the glaucoma disease a top issue of ophthalmology and urge us to organize this annual conference. The aims of the conference are to reliably inform the Greeks ophthalmologists for what topical or newer concerns arose on glaucoma, exclusively. The scientific validity of the event is ensured by the participation of many prominent Greek and foreign speakers, specialized in the subject of our company. We seek the optimal organization of the Congress, both the scientific and the social part, so as to be recognized as a valid scientific activity on an international level.

Subversive developments in the field of glaucoma have not occurred in the recent past, however, there are interesting research and daily operation issues whose discussion will enrich our knowledge and experience for the proper treatment of the suspect or of suffering from glaucoma. This year the scientific activities of the Conference will last three days, in order to be included in the program and more practical issues of everyday operation.

We believe that you will find the presentation material useful, since you can see the presentations of all speakers whenever you want.
