Medical Treatment for Ocular Disease


An invitation to attend the ECVO Meeting

Dear colleagues and friends,

We wish to welcome you all, on behalf of ECVO, to our 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting in Helsinki, Finland. 

Plan to join us May 28-31; it will be a good occasion to learn and to meet old and new friends from all over the world.
The central theme of our 2015 scientific programme is “Medical treatment for ocular disease”.
Three outstanding invited speakers are refining the Continuing Education and Masterclass programmes:

  • Alison Clode, DVM, DACVO, Port City Veterinary Referral Hospital, Portsmouth, NH, USA
  • Gigi Davidson RPh, DICVP Director of Clinical Pharmacy Services, North Carolina State University, USA
  • Alain Regnier, DVM, PhD, Professor of Ophthalmology Department of Clinical Sciences School of Veterinary Medicine, Toulouse, France

The Continuing Education programme focuses on classical treatment, controversies, dilemmas, advances, pearls and perils in treatment of four main conditions:
corneal ulcers, feline herpes, uveitis and glaucoma.

The Masterclass, with the same three speakers, is on ocular barriers, drug delivery in the anterior and posterior segments, side effects, safety and efficacy of therapies delivered to the eye and “Should we be using these drugs” according to evidence-based medicine.

The joint “ECVO State of the Art lecture/ISVO Magrane Memorial Lecture”, in the main programme, is given by Prof. Johan Stjernschantz,
a key figure in the development of latanoprost.

The biennial ISVO meeting will also occur in conjunction with the ECVO meeting on this occasion.

We look forward to seeing you in Helsinki next year!
