Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce and invite you to attend the 10th Annual Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology: Europe (COPHy EU), which will take place in Dublin, Ireland, April 4-6, 2019.

The great success of the previous nine COPHy EU Congresses, held across Europe in Prague, Barcelona, Istanbul, Budapest, Lisbon, Sorrento, Warsaw, Madrid and Athens, as well as the enthusiastic feedback received from the most recent Congresses, confirmed the need for proceeding with the 10th edition of this dynamic Congress.

COPHy EU in Dublin again will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2018 and 2019 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to focus on Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, and will discuss controversies in other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis.
 
Topics will include the treatment of retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema, the role of anti-VEGF agents versus panretinal photocoagulation in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, pathologic myopia, the current management of corneal diseases with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, advances in ophthalmic imaging as well as novel medical and surgical glaucoma issues.
 
Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date recommendations to ongoing debates even when data remain limited, through evidence-based medicine, including expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts.
 
The 10th  COPHy EU Congress will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of diagnostics, distinctive responses to treatments and typical complications. Many of the Faculty members will be local in order to discuss these typical regional problems.

We invite you to participate in the 10th COPHy EU Congress in Dublin.


Sincerely,

Prof. Anat Loewenstein
