Next ISGEO Meeting Dates Agreed, 11 – 12 September 2014 at LSHTM (Updated)
May 29, 2014

The International Society Geographical & Epidemiological Ophthalmology (ISGEO) 2014 meeting is now being arranged.

The ISGEO aims 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. The ISGEO provides a forum for presentation and discussion of research in ophthalmology of international significance and limited support of ophthalmologic research in developing countries. Historically the ISGEO has been particularly interested in diseases that affect developing countries with a focus on the epidemiology and public health aspects of eye disease, and the evaluation of different interventions.

ISGEO holds Congresses every two years for the presentation of scientific papers based on peer-reviewed abstracts; these meetings are usally held in conjunction with host country ophthalmological meetings.


We encourage anyone interested in ophthalmic epidemiology and prevention of blindness, and in receiving the Ophthalmic Epidemiology journal, to join the ISGEO.

To join ISGEO, please download and complete the ISGEO membership and subscription form (Word 45Kb) and send to the address details as given in the form. Membership, which includes a subscription to Ophthalmic Epidemiology, remains at US$100 per year.
