Welcome Notes

Dear friends and colleagues,

John Sloper

It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 38th Annual Congress of the European Strabismological Association in Budapest from 28th September to 1st October 2016. Budapest is a beautiful city with its two parts, Buda and Pest which sit on either side of the River Danube being united in 1873. It is steeped in history from Celtic times onwards and has an impressive medieval castle, but in particular it has many beautiful streets and buildings from the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. There are also interesting building from the more recent past, including an underground hospital. We are holding the Congress in the Best Western Hotel Hungaria near the historic centre of the city and are looking forward to some very interesting scientific sessions. Transport links are excellent and there will be a good range of reasonably priced hotels from which to choose accommodation. I look forward to meeting you in Budapest.

Dear Colleagues!


On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure to invite you to take part in the 38th Congress of the European Strabismological Association to be held  in Budapest, Hungary, from the 28th September to the 1st October 2016.

We experienced, how extraordinary interesting and successful was the 2015’s meeting in Venice, Italy for ophthalmologists, optometrists and residents from Europe and all over the world!

Conferences are becoming more and more informative, even sometimes to the extreme. While giving overview on all important and new aspects of strabismus, ESA provides a platform where there is time for discussion. Experts discuss their experiences and that way,  dissemination of knowledge is easier. The better, easier and more effective treatments can be spread all over the world.

The congress venue this year is Best Western Hotel Hungaria, situated in the heart of Budapest’s city. As a conference center, it provides an auditorium equipped with technical facilities of the highest standard. An experienced professional staff (Tensi Congress) will help participants with all details.

Your particular work is welcome, it will enrich the world of strabismus science so do not hesitate to present it to colleagues all over the world. Moreover, it gives You the possibility to international evaluation of the results.

We hope that this year’s meeting will be a fruitful one for all participants. We cordially invite You to the beautiful city of Budapest and hope to make the 38th ESA Congress a memorable experience for you!
