13th National Conference on Cornea and Eye Banking 2023 Varanasi

About Event

Welcome to Varanasi

Welcome to the Holy City of Varanasi, which has been the knowledge capital of the country since time immemorial. In the words of Mark Twain, ‘Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice old as all of them put together.’ It is the perfect place where Science meets Tradition.

We are really thrilled to host the 13th National Conference on Cornea and Eye Banking in the holy city of Varanasi again after a gap of7 years. The last Conference in 2016 was a memorable event for all of us. It is a pleasure and honor for the Varanasi Ophthalmological Society and UPSOS to be associated with this mega event. The Conference would be a 2-day academic feast for Ophthalmologists and the Eye Bankers who are the backbone of the Eye Banking Fraternity.

This year we will mainly focus on the newer trends in Corneal Surgery and devise newer ways to strengthen our EyeBanks. With the new team of EBAI, we are much more charged and ready to deliver more to the growth of our society. As in 2016, we shall invite stalwarts to perform Live Surgeries in Ophthalmology; especially focusing on newer modalities like DMEK/DSEK/DALK and SLET besides routine PK and Phaco. For a better understanding of our audience, we would also behaving Video Assisted Skill Transfer Courses and Wet labs, especially for the Eye Bankers.

We do hope that the Conference would prove to be an excellent platform for all of us, especially Cornea Specialists, and would help improve our level of knowledge and enhance our surgical skills. After Covid, we have seen a steep dip in cornea retrieval, which has till date not come back to the pre-covid numbers. This event would definitely help us to retrieve more cornea, to increase the utilization rate, and improve the surgical results.
