Welcome note by the EPOS President
I would like to cordially invite you to this year’s 47th Annual Meeting of the European Paediatric Ophthalmological Society from the 8th-9th October 2022 in Munich, Germany.
In collaboration with the EPOS Board, the local organising team of Oliver Ehrt, Claudia Priglinger, Günter Rudolph, Theresia Ring, Lieselotte Rudolph and colleagues at the University Eye Hospital of Munich’s Ludwig-Maximilians-University have put together a really outstanding conference program for us.
After last year’s focus on ‘The importance of the first year’, this year’s meeting continues the theme with an emphasis on ‘Vision problems in school age’.
By the latest count, the conference program will include 30 invited talks by international experts, 16 free papers, 33 rapid fire and 81 poster presentations, giving an update on all aspects of paediatric ophthalmology from dyslexia, functional visual loss, headache in childhood, progression of myopia, adnexal and ocular surface disease, cataract and glaucoma, anterior segment malformations, ROP, imaging, retina, preventing retinal detachment, uveitis to neuro-ophthalmology and gene therapy!
The conference thus reflects EPOS’ continued mission to advance the field of Paediatric Ophthalmology by promoting the presentation of the latest research to achieve the development and adoption of the best diagnostic and therapeutic practices for all children with ophthalmic disorders and their families.
To encourage young ophthalmologists with an interest in Paediatric Ophthalmology, EPOS will grant again this year Travel Awards and a multitude of Prizes for Best Posters, Best Rapid Fires and Best Free Papers, which will be conferred at the end of the conference.
The conference venue will be the historic Great Aula of the Ludwig Maximilians University in the heart of the beautiful city of Munich close to magnificent museums, cafés and parks to enjoy and relax in.
The Annual Meetings of EPOS provides an efficient way to gain a comprehensive update on the latest advances in all aspects of Paediatric Ophthalmology.
In addition, I hope the 47th Annual Meeting of EPOS will inspire the exchange of many new ideas and strengthen lasting friendships and collaborations among our delegates from all over the world.
We look much forward to welcoming you to EPOS 2022 in Munich!

European Paediatric Ophthalmological Society (EPOS)
EPOS is the leading and largest group of those interested in Paediatric Ophthalmology and Genetics in Europe. One of the basic principles of the Group has been that discussion of squints should be excluded and left to the strabismological societies and this will be maintained.
