Eyehope meeting 2022

47th Trends in Ophthalmology

Thursday 3rd & Friday 4th February 2022

The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG

Having only been able to put on a one-day virtual event in 2021, we are back to our usual format of a two-day, in-person meeting at the prestigious Royal Society in London. We hope to also provide an option to purchase a recording of the meeting.

There will be updates on ‘trends’ in paediatric ophthalmology, corneal and cataract surgery, genetics & research and medical retina. Challenging clinical cases will be provided by our nationally renowned Medical Eye Unit and ‘Cases of the Year’ by our sub-specialty trainees. 

The Catherine Heatley Memorial Lecture will be given by one of our research fellows and the Ridley Eye Foundation Medal Lecture by Prof Lim, Glaucoma Consultant and Head of KCL Frost Eye Research Unit.

We are grateful to our Industry partners for supporting this event:
Altacor, AOS, Bausch+Lomb, Santen, Scope, Farmigea Ophthalmics Ltd, Haag-Streit & John Weiss, Beaver Visitec International, and Thea UK Ltd.

About Trends 2020                                                                                                                    2020 marked the very special occasion of the 70th anniversary of the first ever lens implantation for cataract surgery by Sir Harold Ridley at St Thomas’ Hospital. The 45th Trends meeting included a grand ball and a fabulous talk from the Rayner and Ridley families. The meeting was very well attended with over 180 delegates on both days. The evaluation, based on over 100 returned surveys, shows that 98% of delegates thought the meeting overall was very good to excellent.

‘One of the best meetings in the uk that I have been attending for over ten years’.

‘As always, the course was well organised. Interesting case presentations, good discussions and lots to take back to your practice’.

‘The meeting was well organised. 

Eyehope – The Charity

The charity Eyehope was formed in 2007 by a group of leading London ophthalmologists. Our Trustees and volunteers are passionate about improving the treatment and care for eye disease. In 2019 Eyehope became a Charity Incorporated Organisation.

Eyehope funds research into all causes of sight loss. Traditionally, funding for sight problems has been aimed at the commoner causes of visual impairment. We are committed to researching all conditions, no matter how rare. This will directly improve patient treatment and enhance the quality of people’s lives. Our current research projects include Cataract Surgery and Macular Degeneration.


Eyehope supports health professionals with a wide variety of training needs so they can deliver better patient care. We run national courses to optimise the knowledge and skills of those treating eye conditions.

Eyehope’s aim is to enable medical teams to give the best possible care to all patients.

Every day in the UK another
100 people start to lose their sight.
