IOL worldwide – Joint Symposium of DOG and International Intraocular Implant Club (IIIC)
This symposium aims to provide peri- and intraoperative information on IOL surgery around the world forwarded by leading surgeons from the IIIC.
The IIIC is the original club founded by Harold Ridley and other Pioneers. When Harold Ridley implanted the first intraocular lens implants (IOLs), the major concerns related to issues regarding fixation and biocompatibility. Decades of innovation have addressed these concerns and today our attention has moved from discussions on structural to functional aspects of IOLs.
