The Programme Committee for 2030 IN SIGHT LIVE warmly invites abstract submissions for rapid fire and poster presentations at the event, on 26 & 27 June 2024 in Mexico City.


This unique global gathering is dedicated to addressing one of the world's greatest challenges—ensuring universal eye health. The Mexico programme will delve into various facets of this challenge, aiming to collectively end avoidable sight loss by 2030.


Under the theme 'Act Today, Transform Tomorrow,' our programme explores how we can leverage our collective expertise, innovation, and dedication to steer a transformative path towards universal eye care access.  2030 In Sight is our decade-long mission to end preventable sight loss and ensure universal eye care by 2030. We focus on elevating vision, integrating eye health into healthcare systems, and activating market change. Learn more on the 2030 In Sight page. We welcome the submission of abstracts relevant to one of the programme streams, which is "Driving Progress for 2030 In Sight". Abstract submissions are accepted in English, Spanish, or Portuguese under ELEVATE, INTEGRATE, and ACTIVATE.
