 Since 1992, the World’s most talented Anterior Segment Surgeons have met bi-annually in different locations throughout Aegean Islands in Greece to share their knowledge and experience. 2016 marks the 25th Anniversary of the first LASIK procedure and this will be the centerpiece for the 13th Aegean Corneal Conference to be held in Crete July 1-3. The major strength of the meeting is the extended periods of discussion between presentations. The atmosphere allows Industry and Participants to freely interact.

Over 150 experts Ophthalmologists and PhDs will discuss the following subjects (and many others) at this upcoming meeting:


  • 25 Years of LASIK (and other refractive surgical approaches)


  • The new face of LASIK?


  • Femtosecond lasers applications for anterior segment surgery


  • Femtosecond laser cataract surgery applications and techniques


  • Current and experimental approaches to management of Dry Eye


  • Diagnostic equipment for screening and managing anterior segment diseases including tracey/wf technologies , topography, tomography, intraoperative pachymetry and OCT, calculation of IOL powers after refractive surgery


  • Collagen crosslinking: 10 years later. Epi on vs. off, accelerated CXL, decentered treatment, new indications, stability, progression prevention


  • Presbyopia surgery: Inlays, onlays, lasers, and lens approaches


  • Endothelial keratoplasty: DMEK, DALK, DSAEK. Techniques, results, complications, learning curves compared


  • Corneal wound healing as it relates to refractive surgery. New discoveries and approaches to control


  • New and experimental treatments for ocular infections
