    European Paediatric Ophthalmological Society
    The 46th Annual Meeting of EPOS 2020 will be in Copenhagen, Denmark and has the topic “The important first year. Vision 20/20”. Babies develop at exorbitant speed, and largely this is guided by visual inputs. Goal of this conference is to update all on the also rapid development of ophthalmological treatment: genetic therapy is now available and preterm born children now rarely go blind due to ROP in Europe, but other health issues threaten vision as very early survival is possible.
    The organisers will apply for CME accreditation awarded by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
