This year’s theme “Envisioning a new world reinforces our commitment to a world where everyone has access to eye health and vision care that is affordable, accessible and of high professional standards. 

2020 marks a key year for vision and although the celebrations of achievements and the revealing of new plans were put aside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the health inequalities that the pandemic has unveiled, make it even more relevant to be prepared to provide services to those most vulnerable who are at risk of being left behind in what will be a more challenging world in the future.

The meeting is a COPE accredited activity offering 2 COPE qualified courses.

Although we will miss the personal interaction, please join us for a day of sharing and learning from the comfort of your own home.  You can find details of the programme below.  



We are glad to welcome the following exhibitors who will be available to meet participants during the breaks.

The company and device have been recognized in international health and technology competitions, including Beazley Designs of the Year, Essilor See Change, Silmo D’Or, and IAPB Eye Health Heroes. Vision professionals and NGOs have used QuickSee on over 2 million patients at least 25 countries to transform their lives with clear vision.  Visit the virtual booth of Plenoptika during the breaks at our Annual Meeting.  More information here
