The 103rd Oxford Ophthalmological Congress took place on 8th - 10th July 2019. Thank you to all those who joined us. 
We had just under 390 delegates and the evaluation results are showing that over 95% thought the Congress was excellent. The Photgraphs will be available shortly.

On 28th January 2019 The Oxford Ophthalmoligcal Congress (OOC) became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registered charity number 1181776). As part of this process the OOC has invited professional providers of Secretariat, Congress Event Management and Industry Exhibition specialists to tender for the 2021 (and futher) Congress'. 





About The Oxford Ophthalmological Congress

A unique 'Ophthalmic and Oxford' experience for delegates and speakers...

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 103rd 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 is now open.

  • The Oxford Scientific Venue - The New Theatre, our venue for the scientific programme and poster display, allows us to present in an ambience not often found in congress centres.

  • The Social Meetings & Accommodation - Our long-term & prestigious congress partner, The Worcester College, will once again host the 'Welcome and Congress Drinks Receptions' on it's lawns in the Marquee. There are also a limited number of rooms available.


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 second Monday in July 2019 through to the following Wednesday at The New Theatre, Oxford. Accommodation and social events from the Sunday afternoon preceeding the scientific programme are in Worcester College, Oxford.

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