President letter

Dear colleagues in dry eye and ocular surface disease,

The European Dry Eye Society was created just one year ago! It’s time to make a first assessment!
Since the launch of the Society on November 3, 2020, more than 1900 members have joined the Community.

A 2-days live digital congress (EuDEC) was organised in June 2021 with well-known speakers from all over the world: 400 connected people (live & replay). This was a great success that we hope to amplify in our face-to-face congress in 2022.

All year long, Dry Eye Live Talks are organised on the Live talk dedicated platform:

Additionally, e-symposia from our industry partners have been proposed and I take the opportunity here to thank them again for their support to our new society.

You also have the possibility to follow our society on social networks : Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn!

In 2022, we will propose an even more attractive programme. We can now already announce a face-to-face congress in Paris on June 10-11. Information about venue and abstract submission are available on the Congress’ tabs.
As a member of our society, you will benefit from preferential registration fees.

Moreover we are happy to extend free membership for next year.


Eric Maury, Président de la SRLF

Pr Christophe Baudouin
President of the European Dry Eye Society
