World Cornea Congress

The World Cornea Congress (WCC) is the Cornea Society’s premiere educational and research meeting.  The Congress highlights the progress that has been made in both clinical and research endeavors of the international corneal community. Originally held approximately every ten years, more rapid advances in the field have made it necessary to schedule World Cornea Congresses every five years.  WCC I was organized by J. Harry King, MD, in Washington, DC in 1964 prior to formation of the Society. WCC II was the first of the Congresses to be sponsored by the Society. The next meeting of the World Cornea Congress  is scheduled for the spring of 2015 in San Diego, CA.
