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 1700 members have joined the Community.

A 2-day live digital congress (EuDEC) was organized in June with well-known speakers from all over the world: 400 connected people (live & replay). This was a great succes and we sincerely hope to organise a face to face congress in 2022.

All year long, Dry Eye Live Talks have been organized on the Live talk dedicated platform:

The next one is planned on December 2, in partnership with IT-DED3. The format will be a little different: We propose a FULL DAY SYMPOSIUM ON DRY EYE DISEASE from 8.30 am to 5.45 pm CET. Detailed programme is available on Live talk page.

All year long, 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 opening date will be given soon.
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
