It is my pleasure to invite you to the Croatian Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery (CSCRS) annual congress that will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Zagreb at 10th March 2018.

This year’s programme is conceived as a group of specialised symposiums, and as such, will offer its participants the possibility to partake in the most contemporary lectures regarding the field of ophthalmology of their interest. There are eight main symposiums (Cataract and Refractive Surgery of the Lens, Glaucoma – Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment, Contact Lenses, Conservative and Surgical Treatments of Retina, Refractive Surgery and Corneal Surgery, Neuroophthalmology, Oculoplastic Surgery, Free Papers). A number of ″satellite symposiums″ that deal with interesting cases from everyday general ophthalmic practice will be held along with the main symposiums.

As a part of the surgical education for young ophthalmologists, a PHACO course and a Refractive Surgery course will be held and, during a Video symposium, interesting and didactic cases will be presented.

Additionally, a “WET LAB” will be organised  where participants will be able to learn and practice cataract surgery, phakic intraocular lense implantation and laser vision correction on artificial eyes.
The participants will also have the chance to take advantage of a number of workshops / symposiums where they will be able to actively discuss and hear the latest news in their field of interest. They will be able to interact, collaborate and share knowledge, experience and surgical skills with their colleagues from all over the world.
The registration fee is 750,00 kuna (135 €) for payments. On the day of the congress, the registration fee amounts to 1.000,00 kuna (135 €). Members of the Croatian Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgery and residents are entitled to a reduced fee of 500,00 kuna (70 €).

The preliminary programme, accommodation prices and other information will be available at the CSCRS website from 10th February 2018.
