Dear colleagues and friends!
Welcome to the 4th Serbian Glaucoma Society Congress with international participation!
Following the tradition, we will again meet and learn together on the Kopaonik mountain.
Each year, we have more and more participants…. On the 3rd Serbian Society Glaucoma Congress, there were almost twice more domestic and foreign participants (428), than that we had on the 1th Serbian Glaucoma Society Congress. That makes us very happy and proud, but also make us responsible because of the fact that the glaucoma in Serbia, as subspeciality branch found its fertile ground, and in the future will further develop …
On this Congress, we will especially insist on education throught a number of thematic organized courses, with eminent lecturers from the country and abroad. We have also provided special courses for young ophthalmologists (for our satisfaction there are more and more of them in Serbia), on which they will, with the mentoring of their older colleagues, transfer basic knowledge in the field of glaucoma. Of course, invited lectures, symposiums and free themes from glaucoma are an indispensable part of the program of this Congress.
In spite of global problems in the pharmaceutical industry, our friends and sponsors of the Congress recognized its importance and place to promote their activities.
On behalf of the Steering Committee of the SGS, and the Organizing Committee and our friends and sponsors of the Congress, I invite you to take an active part in the work of the Congress. The Serbian Glaucoma Society Congress with international participation has become the recognizable event among ophthalmologists, the opportunity to renew knowledge, learn something new and have a good friendship in the beautiful environment of Kopaonik.
Traditionally there is always the Congress moto. This Congress will be held under the moto: Dum docent discunt. (They learn while teach others, Seneca).
President of Serbian glaucoma Society
Prof. Dr Nikola Babić M.D., Ph.D.
