Our President, Rosa Sánchez de Vega, represented Aniridia Europe at the 39th Meeting of the European Strabismological Association ESA), in Porto (Portugal), from 13th to 16th September 2017.
Here again we shared the table with Albinism Europe. The speeches were mostly related to the treatment of strabismus and amblyopia and had the highest scientific quality. The meeting gathered more than 500 delegates, coming from all parts of the world, which meant a good opportunity to meet professionals dealing with paedriatic low vision, including children with aniridia. Aniridia Europe disseminated information about our organisation and our genetic eye condition. We made a great effort to meet doctors and visual rehabilitation professionals from countries where there is not an association of aniridia, such as: Japan, Portugal, Serbia, Turkey, Poland, the Netherlands, Brazil and Mexico.
