Zlin Ophthalmology Festival

Traditional educational event for eye physicians, nurses and other ophthalmologists. 


Zlin Festival of Ophthalmology or so called ZOF, has become an annual meeting point of eye doctors and nursing personnel.


Ophthalmolgists from all over the Czech and the Slovak Republics as well as from Poland come to Zlin in March to exchange their experience from daily practice and also to listen to interesting case studies of their colleagues. 

The attendance grows consistently year to year – last year roughly 600 participants were enrolled – 400 physicians and ophthalmologists and 200 nurses.

About the ZOF congress

Usually, in four lecture sessions, you can listen to or actively present professional contributions – case studies, which are concluded with a survey question.


We offer interactive communication directly with the speakers of individual presentations, as well as voting and the selection of the winning presentation for the entire festival. Some case studies may include the presence of specific patients. At other times, you can witness online discussions by leading world ophthalmic surgeons, broadcasted in real-time to the congress hall.

The professional part of the congress is regularly complemented by a cultural program, refreshments, and sponsor presentations in the lobby and corridors of the Zlín Congress Center.


Upon prior agreement, students from medical schools may also attend the program.


The educational event is organized according to the Regulation No. 16 of the Czech Medical Chamber and is accredited with 6 credits for czech physicians.
