Ophthalmology – an all-embracing discipline

Dear colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the DOG 2016 in Berlin. The 114th DOG Congress will be held from September 29 to October 2, 2016 once again at the Estrel Congress & Messe Center. For several years now the focus has no longer been on specific diseases or sub-specialties; too broad and too diverse has become the field of ophthalmology.


Keynote Lecture: Friend and Foe – The Influence of Light on Eye Health

While dependent on visible light, the eye can be damaged by these and the contiguous ultraviolet (UV) and infrared wavelengths. Professor Minas Coroneo has studied the pathophysiology of ocular epithelia and the ocular effects of sunlight for many years. In the first keynote lecture of the congress, he presents his latest findings.
