Welcome from the President of the IOA

As President of the International Orthoptic Association (IOA), it is my pleasure to welcome you to the XIIIth Congress of the IOA, to be held in June 2016 at De Doelen Concert and Congress Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The IOA is an international organization representing orthoptists. It includes member associations hailing from 24 different countries representing approximately 10,000 orthoptists from all continents of the world. The IOA aspires to advance knowledge in orthoptics worldwide. The association facilitates international cooperation and collaboration about orthoptic science, education and practice to improve the quality of life for patients we care for. The IOA Congress creates, shares and distributes information as well as provides a platform for international networking.

The agreed theme for the Rotterdam Congress, i.e., “Bridging Worlds” reflects the work of our dynamic, culturally and linguistically diverse profession. I invite you to join us in the Netherlands and participate in the Rotterdam Congress June 27-30, 2016.

Yours sincerely,
Karen McMain IOA President
