Third NIIOS Cornea Evening – Live Online – May 29th 2021

On Saturday, May 29th, 2021 we organized our third virtual NIIOS Cornea Evening – Live Online. We noted around 1000 registrations from about 75 countries. We could see and feel your presence through your contribution during the polls, Q&A sessions and WhatsApp messages. Your presence was extremely important to make this event a success.

We hope you were inspired by our program and amazing faculty of international corneal experts and liked the creative breaks, musical interludes and the interactions with you as viewers! Before the scientific program, our evening traditionally started off with classical music composed by Dr. John Gottsch (Baltimore) and Dr. Gerrit Melles. We hope you enjoyed it.

"Cheers to the people behind the scenes, nice piece of work. The people in front of the camera with their enthusiasm were really distinctive and remarkable, in 5 minutes they were able to bring the heart of the matter into the spotlight. Lamis as a moderator was just right on content and relationship! "
