  • 5th ESA pre-conference Strabismus Workshop

    Welcome to the 5th ESA pre-conference Strabismus workshop!
    Some aspects will be different from previous years: 
    •     it will be virtual
    •     we will present easy cases to start a topic and answer your questions.
    •     we will use online voting to get EVERYBODY involved in the discussion
    ... and some will be the same:
    • it will be interactive - no lecture monologues
    • the workshop will concentrate on basic concepts - not tricky exceptions

    So we invite every young strabismologist to join for 2h of interactive case discussion :
    "What examination next?" "What is your differential diagnosis?", "What treatment do you suggest?" ... or whatever question YOU have.

    Because the number of participants is limited and we want to invite beginners in strabismus, we ask our expert audience to refrain from registering. Thank you.

    We welcome you to this new format and look forward to the workshop.
