Words of the President
The South-East European Ophthalmological Society (SEEOS) was founded in 2004, as an international regional association to collect the ophthalmologists from South-East European countries. Now, 18 countries – Albania, Bosnia-Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine – belong to this Society.
Every year one of the member states organizes the Congress of SEEOS. After 12 successful congresses in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina (2004), Sofia, Bulgaria (2005), Thessaloniki, Greece (2006), Novi Sad, Serbia (2007), Dubrovnik, Croatia (2008), Budapest, Hungary (2009), Tirana, Albania (2010), Istanbul, Turkey (2011), Portoroz, Slovenia (2012), Ohrid, Macedonia (2013), Bucharest, Romania (2014), Budva, Montenegro (2015), this year (2016) is a very special year for me for two reasons:
Firstly as the President of the Congress of SEEOS, I would like to welcome you in Bratislava, Slovakia and share with you all the latest updates regarding Ophthalmology.
Secondly after many efforts, I would like to announce you the issue of the on-line South-East European Journal of Ophthalmology.
