Dear colleagues and friends,
It is my pleasure to welcome you all to the 23rd EVER Congress, which will be held in Valencia on October 13-15, 2022.
The pandemic situation has clearly modified our social relations for the last two years, and we hope that by the time we celebrate the 23rd meeting of the EVER society we’ll all be able to interact again and participate at this wonderful Congress Venue over the Mediterranean shore.
The eye and vision science evolves at a great speed and two years imply great changes in technologies, approaches and concepts. The European Association for Vision and Eye Research (EVER) congress is the appropriate site for clinicians and scientists to discuss their latest advances, and to encourage the participation of young ophthalmologists and visual scientists, as they are undoubtedly the future of our society. Sharing knowledge is usually the main purpose of the Congress, but this year we also need to re-launch the society encouraging the participation of students, residents in training and young investigators.
On behalf of the EVER community, I would like to invite you all to participate and support the 23rd EVER Congress in Valencia (Spain). Between the EVER Board and all EVER members we will make an attractive scientific program for everyone. In addition, last but not least, Valencia is a particularly hospitable and charming city, with a spectacular gastronomy and benign weather.
Professor Manuel Vidal-Sanz, MD, PhD, FARVO
