50th Cambridge Ophthalmological Symposium

Meeting postponed until 2021

Given the anticipated challenges of holding the Symposium in 2020 we have decided to move the excellent programme to 2021.


We are sure you will be as disappointed as we are not to be able to go ahead with our 50th meeting this year.

Given the discursive and social nature of the meeting our view is that it was doubtful we will be able to do the Symposium justice with the expected social distancing requirements in September. 

The positives, registration for 2021 is open and it will be the same programme of events just 'plus 1'.

St John’s College, Cambridge, UK

1st - 3rd September 2021


Topic: Vision 2020 in 2030 (plus 1) – The next 10 years


Chairs: Prof Rupert Bourne, UK and Prof Hugh Taylor, Australia
Academic Organiser: Mr Martin Snead, UK

  • 2-day International scientific meeting (18 CPD points)

  • Enjoyed by scientists and clinicians (not only ophthalmologists)

  • Plenty of lively debate as well as world-class speaker presentations

  • Social occasions – including dinner in the Hall

  • An historical ‘Cambridge College’ environment

  • Now in its 50th year (see previous topics)


Join leading epidemiologists, translational health scientists, ophthalmic researchers and clinicians from around the world discuss and debate past learnings, current insights and future possibilities.

From identifying the prime opportunities, to facing the realities of offering global best eye care, we will be challenging an opinion that ‘a wish to treat may not always be in consummate with an ability to treat’.

Thinking about whether to register now or not given the current COVID-19 situation? Registration fees are refundable until the 1 August 2021.
