EBO-EGS Examinations
The European Board of Ophthalmology (EBO), in collaboration with the EGS, wishes to both increase general as well as subspecialty care in Europe. To do this it is offering the opportunity for ophthalmologists with particular interest in glaucoma to have their knowledge and expertise acknowledged. It will be achieved by an EBO Glaucoma Subspecialty Exam. Successful candidates will be awarded a diploma: the Glaucoma Subspecialty EBO Diploma.  This is expected to be recognized as a proof of advanced knowledge and competence in this field and contribute to raising the standards of glaucoma care in Europe.

The 2018 FEBOS Glaucoma Subspecialty Exam will be held in Vienna, Austria on Friday 21st September 2018 (immediately preceding the ESCRS Congress). Applications now open.
