As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented public health challenge, and we were forced to postpone our Annual Meeting a full year. Hopefully we will physically meet again in Naples in September 2021.
In the meantime, to serve our members and those interested in our teaching activities, we held several webinars on various topics relating to challenging cases in Oculoplastics, Lacrimal and Orbital Surgery: a live ESOPRS Academy. We will continue in 2021 if this initiative will be successful, hopefully with an input from all interested Members.
