Welcome Notes


For nearly five decades ophthalmological societies of three Baltic States continue to bring joint scientific meetings to deliver outstanding continuous education for eye doctors.

On behalf of the Lithuanian Ophthalmological Society I would like to welcome you to the 16th Forum Ophthalmologicum Balticum (FOB) to be held on 2019 August 23-24, in Vilnius, Lithuania.

We cordially invite you to come, meet your colleagues, learn and share experiences. FOB 2019 will focus on the most relevant topics and issues of ophthalmology, both theoretical and practical. You will be able to gain insights, exchange ideas and meet the experts and participants from different countries.

We are working hard to organize an outstanding scientific and educational meeting to facilitate the spread and exchange of knowledge, skills and attitudes, between experts, researchers, clinicians and trainees.

The industry exhibition will provide an excellent opportunity to see and test latest equipment, newest pharmaceutical developments and therapeutic approaches in ophthalmology.

I hope that you will also take some time to enjoy our social programme and some of Vilnius' unsurpassed attractions. Both Opening Reception and Gala Dinner will be great networking events. The congress will take place in Radisson Blue Hotel Lietuva, situated on the bank of the River Neris in the centre of Vilnius, only a 10 minute walk to the UNESCO listed medieval old town.

Cordially welcome to Vilnius!

Looking forward to seeing you in August,

Vilma Jūratė Balčiūnienė
President of Lithuanian Ophthalmological Society
