Medicontur at the ESCRS Congress 2023

Our company exhibited in Vienna, Austria from the 8-11 of September 2023.
Medicontur attended the 41st ESCRS Congress in Vienna, Austria at the Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Centre in September 2023. We were pleased to meet with our network and happy to present our premium IOL portfolio to the eye care professionals including the Bi-Flex EDoF ELON IOL and the Liberty IOL.

The Congress was an important milestone for our company as we launched a new IOL within the ELON product family, the ELON Toric IOL which is available
between the cylindric powers of 1.0 and 6.0 D to provide simultaneous presbyopia- and astigmatism correction. The first ELON Toric implantation was carried out by Prof. Sathish Srinivasan at the Ayrshire Eye Clinic in Scotland, UK just before the ESCRS Congress.

We organized a scientific symposium with a record numbers of participants on the 9th of September titled State of the art IOL-based solutions in cataract and refractive surgery, where the key opinion leaders covered the following topics:

1. ELON IOL: Optics and Visual outcomes

Prof. Sathish Srinivasan MBBS, FRCSEd, FRCOphth, FACS

2. Matching patients to the intraocular lens: Pre-operative considerations to optimize surgical outcomes and results

Johann Kruger MD, MMed, FCS, FRCS

3. Unique applications of 1stQ AddOn® sulcus IOLs

4. Initial clinical experiences, including visual quality and the incidence of photic phenomena after the implantation of the ELON EDoF intraocular lens - A one-year follow-up
Joaquín Fernández MD, PhD

5. Visual disturbances and the impact of lens decentration after the implantation of three different presbyopia-correcting IOLs

6. 1stQ AddOn® – the most efficient and flexible secondary IOL solution for presbyopia correction
Kjell Gunnar Gundersen MD, PhD

During the 4 days of the Congress we organized 6 booth talks to provide a better understanding about our premium IOLs for the professionals.

It was a pleasure to meet with the ophthalmologists and our network in person and we look forward to meet again next year in Barcelona, at the 42nd ESCRS Congress in September!
