Trauma ISOT

Eurolam Trauma works together with the International Society of Ocular Trauma (ISOT), groups with a special interest in ocular trauma. The society promotes ocular trauma prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation through education and research.

Ocular trauma is an evolving specialty that includes a specific combined knowledge of the anterior and posterior segment. Eye trauma represents a medical and surgical challenge; each case has to be evaluated individually to determine the best management. It is of vital importance to share personal experiences and results to grow up together.

Eurolam Trauma and ISOT promote the collaboration with International Injury Registry: the United States Eye Injury Registry (USEIR), that has accumulated the largest database of eye injuries in the world and the World Eye Injury Registry (WEIR). Eurolam Trauma and ISOT promote the terminology standardization through the BETTS classification (Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology System). Eurolam Trauma and ISOT organize a biannual ocular trauma congress and sponsors meetings on ocular trauma.
