A Message from the President

Friedrich Kruse

Dear friends and colleagues,

Welcome to the second EuCornea newsletter of 2018.

Corneal experts and researchers from all over the world are looking forward to the 9th EuCornea Congress, which will take place on 21-22 September in Vienna, Austria.

We have some great speakers lined up and, in this newsletter, we will cover some of the hot topics that will be discussed in Vienna. We also look at some recent articles on cornea from EuroTimes and some very interesting videos from some of our key opinion leaders.

I would like to thank our Executive and Board Members for the excellent work they have done in promoting the society and look forward to seeing you in Vienna.


Friedrich Kruse
President, EuCornea
