From September 26 to September 30, 2017 in France, Nice, the 20th anniversary international conference EVER - European Association for Vision and Eye Research was held. This is a scientific conference for researchers in the field of diseases of the visual analyzer and related disciplines, where fundamental aspects of medicine and ophthalmology are studied.

EVER is the leading ophthalmological research association in Europe that covers all fields of ophthalmology and related sciences. Currently EVER has more than 850 members from 48 countries around the world and presents eleven scientific sections. One of EVER's main activities is the organization of a high-quality research meeting.

Delegates from all over the world usually take part in the congress, and the events include lectures given by outstanding specialists and symposia on various fields of ophthalmology.

The EVER-2017 Congress was traditionally held at the Acropolis Convention Center in Nice, France, attended by over 1,000 delegates from various countries. The scientific program of the conference did not only cover all sections of ophthalmological disciplines, but also genetics, neurophysiology and medical robotics. Within the framework of the conference organizational and scientific meetings were held and an exhibition of modern ophthalmologic equipment, instruments and pharmacological products was presented.

The delegation of the Ufa Eye Research Institute took part in the conference. The group of authors (G.M. Bikbova, E.L. Usubov, G.M. Kazakbaeva, R.A.Kazakbaev) under the direction of Professor M.M. Bikbov presented two poster presentations in the "Cornea and Ocular Surface" section: 

- Implantation of the Myoring corneal ring in combination with corneal cross-linking in the treatment of keratoconus
- Comparative evaluation of femtolaser-assisted and manual anterior lamellar keratoplasty in keratoconus

Poster sessions, unlike traditional conferences, are presented in an interactive mode, and the speaker answers the questions of moderators and listeners, defending his point of view.

Within the framework of the conference there were interesting meetings with the leading ophthalmologists of the world: Professor H.S. Dua, Professor A. Dick, Professor L. Schmetterer  and other foreign colleagues who showed a genuine interest in the Ufa Ophthalmology School and the desire to participate in the work of our annual International Conference on Ophthalmology "East-West".
