Paridaens speaker at joint ESOPRS/APSOPRS symposium at SOE Meeting in Nice, France (June 2019)

During the 2019 Meeting of the European Society of Ophthalmology (SOE, 13-16 June) in Nice a joint symposium was organized by C Hintschich, the representant of ESOPRS (European Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery). The topic was “Oculoplastics: new approaches towards old challenges”. The symposium was very well attended despite the early hour and discussed the newest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of various disorders, including lacrimal stenosis, orbital imaging, nanotechnology in Graves orbitopathy, endoscopic orbital decompression and combined therapies for G. O., surgery for orbital venous malformations and the use of bioresorbables in orbital reconstruction.

Paridaens was also included in another symposium during SOE2019 entitled: “Orbital Clinic – Interactive Case Presentations, with interesting contributions by European and Asian speakers.
