October 10, 2021 – Day 3 of the annual ESCRS Congress is shaping up to be a very busy day with several symposia, courses, and a couple of free papers.
Between 8 am to 9 am, there will be a Clinical Research Symposia about “Imaging Techniques of the Anterior Segment and Beyond”, which will be followed by Case Reports II and two Free Papers.
The Main Symposium to be held between 9.45 am to 11.15 am will address “Practical Digital Ophthalmology”. After that, participants will be welcome to courses, which will also be held virtually.
Between 11.45 am to 12.45 pm, several global companies are set to give speeches at the Industry Satellite Symposia, where some of them will introduce their new products while others will address new techniques to approach glaucoma or cataract surgeries.
After lunch, there will be a Surgical Video Session, and then a Research Symposium on “Cost-Effectiveness and Value-based Healthcare” – a very interesting topic as the information in this session should help ophthalmologists to engage with both payers and hospital administration staff when resources are limited.
The other Main Symposium will be covering “Enhancements after Refractive Surgery”.
Enhancement of refractive surgery is also a popular issue since refractive patients have high expectations that are sometimes not realized with the initial procedure. As a result, enhancing treatments may be required to achieve better outcomes.
There is also a Symposium titled “IIIC” (Intraocular Lens Implant Club) at the end of the day.
The IILC is a group of international specialists that will, no doubt, present the newest developments in IOL design.
It should be noted that Sunday marks the last day the Exhibition Hall is open, between 9 am to 6 pm.
