The WOC is held every two years in a different region of the world and provides an international audience of ophthalmologists with:

  • A scientific program of over 350 sessions addressing all subspecialties and related interests in ophthalmology with 45 Subspecialty, 39 National, 5 Regional and 4 Supranational Societies participating in the program
  • The opportunity to network with recognized international leaders and professionals
  • An exhibition featuring the latest products and services in the field.
  • Revenues from the WOC help support ICO programs including ophthalmic education, eye care delivery, leadership and society development and the ICO’s commitment to “Building a World Alliance for Sight.”

    The WOC, first held in 1857, is the longest continuous international medical meeting.
