The aims of the Association are to encourage research and the dissemination of knowledge concerning the eye and vision by means of meetings, publications and exchange of information.
EVER is the leading ophthalmological research association in Europe which covers all areas of ophthalmology and the visual sciences.
EVER currently has over 750 members from 67 countries all over the world and represented by 11 scientific sections, ranging from epidemiology to optics, the cornea to the retina, and immunology to genetics. One of the main activities of EVER is the organizing of a high quality research meeting held every October at a location chosen for its easy and economical access, particularly for younger members, and its agreeable autumn climate. Central events include special interest symposia within the various sections and many keynote lectures, which attract prominent speakers. The congress is attended by delegates from all over the world. EVER collaborates closely with several societies in the same field and they convene annually with EVER.
