We are inviting abstracts for the joint EAOO Optometry Conference and the 4th Optometry Conference of Central and South-Eastern Europe (OCCSEE) in Pula, Croatia, 11-13 May 2018. The conference is a collaboration between the European Academy of Optometry and Optics and University of Applied Sciences Velika Gorica, and is held aside with the European Council of Optometry and Optics’ (ECOO) Spring meeting. The conference will bring together professionals from over 30 countries to discuss and share the latest research, education and clinical practice in optometry, optics and dispensing, and vision science.


We are seeking abstracts with research, clinical and educational themes. Abstracts will be presented as oral or poster presentations depending on author preference.

We are especially interested in abstracts and proposals that emphasise what professionals from other countries can learn from your work, and submissions that focus on accreditation, development of professional roles and initiatives to increase capacity to deliver eye care. We also encourage students or newly graduates to present their research or cases form their clinical work.
