Organisation: IAPB

The 2018 ISGEO Congress will be held on 11-12 September 2018, in Hyderabad, India. This will take place a few days before the IAPB Council of Members which is being held in Hyderabad from 15-16 September.

The aim of ISGEO is to promote the science of geographic and epidemiologic ophthalmology among all people and nations. This aim encompasses the epidemiological, clinical, educational, environmental and cultural aspects of eye disease, prevention of blindness, preservation of sight and visual rehabilitation. ISGEO provides a forum for presentation and discussion of research findings, focussing on low resource countries.

At each Congress an invited speaker gives the Elizabeth Cass Lecture, and there may be other key note addresses. The Congress is usually held in conjunction with other international ophthalmology meetings in the host country.

Abstracts are welcomed from ophthalmologists, optometrists, health economists, social scientists, public health physicians or others who have undertaken research of relevance to the control of visual impairment and blindness in low resource settings.
