27th ESCRS Meeting

Over 5000 experts in ophthalmology and refractive surgery from Europe and around the world congregated for this year’s Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in Barcelona, Spain. This large gathering of global ophthalmic delegates was organized by one of the most famous non-profit societies, the ESCRS, which has always enjoyed great support from the wider ophthalmic community.

This year’s 27th ESCRS Congress, held from the 12th to the 16th of September, represents the most significant ophthalmological in Europe and consisted of a rich and diverse scientific program including over 100 instructional courses, 5 main symposia and over 600 free papers presented by speakers from all over the world.

Along with a few other colleagues from Serbia, Dr. Mirko R. Jankov was an excellent representative of Serbian ophthalmology, presenting lectures during two symposia and taking part in three instructional courses on topics such as customized ablation in the management of irregular astigmatism, intracorneal ring segment implantation, and the application of Ultra B2 in the treatment of keratoconus. Aside from this, Dr. Jankov was also an integral part of the ‘Meet the Experts’ session, organized for the benefit of Alcon/Wavelight users, lecturing on the application of topography-guided PRK treatment.
