The ESVO Meeting 2017

Dear friends, colleagues and fellow ophthalmologists,

On behalf of the ESVO board it is our pleasure to invite you to the next ESVO Meeting which will be held in St Petersburg, Russia, from September 7-10th, 2017.

The main topics of the conference will be " Ocular immunology and immune-mediated diseases" and also "Equine ophthalmology" with the main speakers being prof. Dr. Brian Gilger and Dr. Doug Esson, DACVOs from the USA.

On Friday you can expect the popular HED session under the guidance of both speakers in extended format in interactive mode with voting possibilities. Don´t miss the State-of-the-art session devoted to "Research-in-progress and future treatments for immune-mediated ocular disease" by Dr. Brian Gilger.

Prof. Brian Gilger and Dr. Doug Esson will be our key speakers for the meeting and they will also conduct practical workshops on Sunday morning. The social program will be typically Russian!

St. Petersburg is real cultural center. Discover the Hermitage, one of the largest art galleries in the world, visit the Winter palace, the official residence of the Russian monarchs. Enjoy the city which is on the UNESCO list of historic sites and in the night take a romantic walk on Nevsky Prospect and along the riverbank of 342 bridges. You will probably need a visa to enter to Russia, but don´t worry, we can help you to get it.

More information will soon be available on our website (

We are looking forward to seeing you in St Petersburg at our friendly, practical and scientific conference.

Best regards

Jiri Beranek, ESVO President
