Welcome to the 5th International Glaucoma Symposium!
due to the COVID19-pandemic we decided to postpone the 5th International Glaucoma Symposium.
Now we are pleased to announce the 5th International Glaucoma Symposium and Ist International Childhood Glaucoma Symposium, that will be held in Mainz, Sep 3rd and 4th, 2021.
Childhood glaucoma is the most challenging in the field of glaucoma for numerous reasons: Diagnosis and adequate surgical treatment in a small eye is demanding, the interdisciplinary management including consultation of parents, involvement of anesthesiologists, pediatricians, human geneticists and orthoptists requires close cooperation and teamwork and an appropriate infrastructure.
We have organized an interdisciplinary meeting for delegates from around the world to meet and discuss complex childhood glaucoma cases, and to share experiences in managing anesthesia, surgery and follow-up in newborn and children with glaucoma.
We were able to recruit international glaucoma specialists on childhood glaucoma who will share their expertise with all of us. We furthermore, will provide an OCT imaging course, a wetlab on minimal invasive filtering surgery and glaucoma surgery session (Videos).
We hope you will enjoy a great meeting in Mainz.
