The WOC is held in a different region every two years and provides an international audience of ophthalmologists with:

  • A scientific program addressing all subspecialties and related interests in ophthalmology
  • The opportunity to network with recognized international leaders and professionals
  • An exhibition featuring the latest products and services in the field.

Revenues from the World Ophthalmology Congress support a wide range of ICO initiatives and programs and its commitment to “Building a World Alliance for Sight.”  The WOC is the longest continuous international medical meeting, first held in 1857.
