A message from the chairman

Dear friends,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the 10th International Congress on Glaucoma Surgery (ICGS), to be held at the historic Church House, London – UK on February 6-8, 2020. Over the last 20 years, the ICGS has emerged as the key scientific meeting in the field of Glaucoma surgery offering an opportunity for immediate skill transfer from some of the most gifted glaucoma surgeons across the globe. This unique scientific meeting generates great enthusiasm and is renowned for garnering widespread interest and enrolment.

The world of glaucoma surgery is fast evolving and requires keen cooperation and harmonization between research, device innovations, and technical refinements in the surgical management of glaucoma. The prime focus of the ICGS is glaucoma lasers and surgery; however it endeavours to incorporate all aspects of glaucoma care, including epidemiology, diagnostics and medical therapy in order to be increasingly relevant to the glaucoma practitioner.

We are expecting the who’s who of the world of glaucoma; a multinational cast of key glaucoma leaders, premier guest speakers and corporate representatives from all glaucoma-related fields. Our target audience includes glaucoma specialists, general ophthalmologists and related professionals from all over the world.

London is a city like no other. It is the best connected city on the planet and one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. It’s a city where heritage and technology collide; where historic venues steeped in history stand tall among towering skyscrapers; and where world-famous museums rub shoulders with Michelin-starred restaurants.

The congress venue is Church House Westminster, located in the heart of Central London, in the historic and cultural areas. It is a prime Central London location set within Dean’s Yard and offer a peaceful and green setting along with stunning views of Westminster Abbey whilst being only a few minutes’ walk from Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and St James’s Park.

We offer you our warmest welcome and hope to make the 10th ICGS Congress in United Kingdom a memorable experience for you!
