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. Picture, Robert W Doyne, founder of the Oxford Ophthalmological Congress.

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

The Oxford Ophthalmological Congress is the LONGEST STANDING ophthalmological meeting held in the United Kingdom. The Congress maintains 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.


A diverse scientific programme  Led by national and international speakers from varied fields across ophthalmology. 

A forum for sharing first-data and facilitating frank discussion  The Rapid Fire session offers those presenting perhaps their first opportunity to speak in front of a large international audience, inspiring for all. Illustrious speakers offer a personal perspective on best practice in the Case Study Presentation session. 

Enchanting Oxford venues  The New Theatre is our venue for the scientific programme throughout, the Oxford Town Hall for Monday and Tuesday refreshments, posters, exhibition, drinks reception  and Herford College for the Tuesday Gala Dinner. All have their distinctive charm and offer an ambience not often found in congress centres.

Relaxed and inclusive social gatherings  A chance to reflect upon and discuss events of the day. Occasions to catch up with old acquaintances and make some new ones. 

Supporting the wider ophthalmic community The Oxford Ophthalmological Congress funds a maximum of four overseas ophthalmologists each year to help them attend the meeting. If you are interested in applying for funding you can find out more here.
