OSN Italy is a joint meeting of the Italian Society of Ophthalmology (SOI), Ocular Surgery News Europe and the Italian Association of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (AICCER) held each year during the Annual SOI Congress.

OSN Italy provides a unique opportunity for comprehensive ophthalmologists to gain a deeper understanding of the new technologies and devices used in refractive-cataract and glaucoma surgery. Attendees benefit from a dynamic program that focuses on the latest surgical techniques and cutting-edge technologies available as our world-renowned faculty deliver two days of step-by-step live 3D surgeries.
