The aim of ISGEO is to promote the science of geographic and epidemiologic ophthalmology among all people and nations. This aim encompasses the epidemiological, clinical, educational, environmental and cultural aspects of eye disease, prevention of blindness, preservation of sight and visual rehabilitation. ISGEO provides a forum for presentation and discussion of research findings, focussing on low and middle income countries. As epidemiology encompasses the control of diseases in populations, research presentations are welcomed in areas such as operational research, health economics and health systems research.
Abstracts are welcomed from ophthalmologists, optometrists, health economists, social scientists, public health physicians or others who have undertaken research of relevance to the control of visual impairment and blindness in low resource settings.
