Upcoming Events

Every year, NIIOS Academy visits several national and international congresses and meetings. Our ophthalmologists, eye bank specialists and researchers give lectures, presentations and classes on the latest state of affairs in advanced lamellar keratoplasty. You can read more about this on the Presentations and Lectures page.

Besides visiting events, we frequently organize our own events to share knowledge and keep each other up to date about the latest developments and insights in the field of corneal transplantation and endothelial keratoplasty. The NIIOS Academy organizes NIIOS Cornea Evenings (physically and live online), reference meetings, wetlab courses and an annual classical music event.
