October 7th & 8th 2020 - Berlin

International Society of Ocular Trauma

ISOT 2020

Dear Colleagues,

injuries are among the most underestimated dangers to health. Approximately 750,000
people in the US alone suffer from monocular blindness caused by trauma; 90% of those
injuries are deemed avoidable, and epidemiological studies in the past were able to
present effective measures for the prevention of the vast majority of such injuries.
In the past decades, it was thus possible to reduce the number of eye injuries occurring at the workplace, in traffic accidents and during sports activities in certain countries. Obviously,
further improvement is necessary on a worldwide basis.

Conversely, terrorist attacks, wars, and civil uproars significantly increased the number of
eye injuries in some parts of the world. Attacks by terrorist and extremists causing mass casualties can, sadly, occur anywhere in the world today at any time. Thus, triage and psychological care of the victims are completely new tasks that an ophthalmologist is also confronted with. The dramatic improvements the development in vitreoretinal surgery brought can be implemented only to a partial extent in many countries due to limited resources and lack of expertise. All this yields a great variety of topics for an international exchange, so that everybody can learn from everyone.

For this purpose, we invite you on behalf of the International Society of Ocular Trauma and the German Ophthalmological Society, to our joint meeting in Berlin, Germany, from October 7th & 8th, 2020.

The meeting will be dedicated to Albrecht von Graefe, one of the most important German ophthalmologist of the 19th century and citizen of Berlin. 2020 is not only a symbolic number for our specialty but the 150th anniversary of his death.

This joint ISOT/DOG meeting will be virtual, due to the pandemic.

The Trauma submissions will be presented online on Friday October 9 on 2 out of 7 channels (Channel Highlights and Channel Helmholtz).
The keynote lectures will appear on Channel Highlights throughout the day.
