During the 5 days congress, we organized 6 scientific booth talks for which we received great feedbacks on site!

The ESCRS Congress was a great milestone for our company, as our presbyopia-correcting product portfolio was expanded with our new Bi-Flex EDOF lens, the ELON IOL. You can read more about our new product in the EuroTimes Supplement September issue or you can visit the dedicated ELON lens website.

We look forward to meet again personally in the next ESCRS Congress next year in Vienna!
