Who we are

Since 1987, the Advanced Ophthalmologic Practice (AOP) has been dedicated to providing the highest quality of educational material in the field of ophthalmology. Since 2016, under the direction of a new organization, AOP has been developed to include international partnerships and speakers to reach ophthalmologists worldwide. Achieving this vision requires a dynamic organization whose mission embodies the following standards:


Unification and fair representation of the medical expertise in the field of ophthalmology


Excellence in teaching of key subjects related to the eyes


Constant adherence to ethical conduct by minimizing bias & commercial influences

What we do

Each year, the very best specialists in the field of ophthalmology are invited to share their expertise on the different treatments and techniques available: refractive surgery, cataract, cornea, retina, glaucoma, uveitis, contact lenses, pediatric ophthalmology but also aesthetic ophthalmology and professional business. The AOP annual meetings enable each participant to build their own personalized program based on their educational needs and receive the necessary knowledge and trainings.

The scientific program is built to address the latest medical innovations. The diverse session formats bring an in-depth coverage of topics related to the eyes so that participants may flourish in their daily practice.

How we operate

A medical congress is nothing without its contributors. At AOP we recognize the value that our speakers, exhibitors and participants bring to each of our congresses. As such, we have constituted 13 Task Forces made up of AOP speakers and participants who help ensure that AOP constantly pushes the boundaries and distinguishes itself in terms of content quality, innovation and education in the field of ophthalmology. The Task Forces are comprised of international members who are assigned tasks for the development of each of the 13 areas.
