Annual Congress 2022 was a huge success!

This year's Annual Congress 2022 sessions are still available to watch on-demand until 1 September.

We would like to thank all our speakers, chairs, and engaged attendees for making this year’s congress the most successful since 2016!

94.2% of delegates rated their Congress experience as Excellent or Good!

Annual Congress 2022 was a great success thanks to the effort and participation of our speakers,  sponsors and attendees. It would not have been possible without the help of our experienced RCOphth team.

 President Bernie Chang

90.4% of the participants rated our programme as excellent or good. Our programme featured eye care developments, lectures from leading researchers and workshops to develop clinical and non-clinical skills.

Very good sessions. Enjoyed practical sessions as well (Rhexis course with Uday Devgan was really good). Hybrid style is good as can rewatch any lectures at a later date especially if there are few simultaneous interesting sessions ongoing on the actual day itself

Found the conference very interesting and engaging, even as a medical student, most the content was easy to understand. Would like to attend again!

If you missed Congress 2022, the sessions are still available to watch on-demand until 1st September. Registration is now open: https://rcophthcongress.com/rcophth/36/home.

Join us next year at Annual Congress at ICC, Birmingham, 22- 25 May 2023!
