Mission Trip Preparation: Barcelona, Spain. WOC 2018 Day 1

Dr. Kondrot attends the World Ophthalmology Congress in Barcelona, Spain. One of the biggest meetings in ophthalmology organized every two years, WOC brings together ophthalmologists from all around the world to present the latest in technologies and advancement in procedures and cures for eye diseases.

It is eight o’clock in the morning when we walk toward the congress venue at the  Via Gran  Fira in Barcelona.  We meet up with thousands of young people just getting out of an all-night concert!

The whole city scene is lively and fun!  So much energy all around us!

And here is Dr. Kondrot in front of the big hall where the world congress is taking place.  We are expecting more than fifteen thousand ophthalmologists here today! The scientific program of over three hundred fifty sessions that address all subspecialties and related interests in ophthalmology with forty-five Subspecialties.

And here is the opening ceremony to the WOC congress!
