A video previewing the XXXV Congress of the ESCRS is now available on the society’s website.
The video features contributions from key opinion leaders including Richard Packard, Roberto Bellucci, Oliver Findl, Kaarina Vannas, Dan Epstein and Matteo Piovella, who explain why they look forward to the ESCRS Congress every year.
“The ESCRS Congress for me is the most important congress in the year,” said Dr Bellucci, past-president of the ESCRS, speaking in the new video. “Year by year, it took me through ophthalmology. It educated me to surgery, ultimately becoming the most important attraction to me.”
Dr Bellucci added that he was very much looking forward to the Basic Optics Course.
As Dr Vannas points out in the video, new online communication is becoming increasingly important at the annual congress. “Now at ESCRS, we have the possibility to get questions from the audience through an app which you can use in your telephone,” she said.
Dr Packard has run the Video Awards Session at the congress for many years. “I particularly enjoy chairing that session and interviewing the young people who have made these videos and who we give prizes to,” he said.
