Maintaining its status as a key meeting to hear about advances in ophthalmology, the congress attracts distinguished ophthalmology specialists, faculty groups and students from both the UK and aboard.

The Oxford Ophthalmological Congress is the most long standing meeting and now the 2nd largest ophthalmological meeting held in the United Kingdom, attracting approximately 450 delegates each year.

  • The Congress - The 104th congress will be presented by leading national and international speakers from varied fields across Ophthalmology whilst promoting frank, free and tolerant discussion of scientific matters brought before its gathering.

  • A Forum -  the Rapid Fire session offers those presenting perhaps their first opportunity to present in front of a large international audience, inspiring for all. In addition, illustrious speakers offer a personal perspective on best practice in the Case Study Presentation session. Abstract submission will open in December 2019.

Our Congress Mission since 1909
For the cultivation of the spirit of good fellowship and of unconventionality, the right of our youngest member to rank with his oldest colleague, and last, but assuredly not least, the frank, free and tolerant discussion of scientific matters brought before its gathering.

The Annual Meeting will take place from the first Monday in July in 2020 through to the following Wednesday at The New Theatre, Oxford. 

Individually the congress retains many traditions from its formation in 1909, including the renowned Rapid Fire session and the Congress Dinner.
