Join us in Wrocław, Poland!

You’re invited to the 12th Meeting on Visual and Physiological Optics which will be hosted between the 28th and 30th of August at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology.


Invited Speakers

Every two years the VPO Meeting features exciting keynote talks as the Organizing Committee aims to invite both experienced and upcoming speakers. This year is special as VPO is returning to Wrocław – the city which gave birth to the very first VPO and we are honored to present the following keynotes:

Michael Bach (Eye Center, University of Freiburg, Germany)

“Celebrating 39 Years of the Freiburg Vision Test (FrACT) – New Developments” (lecture delivered remotely)

Robert Iskander (Wrocław University of Science and Technology)

"Celebrating 25 years of VPO in Wrocław - a "deformable" mirror approach to showcasing the achievements in vision science and technology at WUST"

Bernhard Baumann (Medical University of Vienna, Austria)

"Advancing Contrast for OCT Imaging"

Len Zheleznyak (Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester)

"Polychromatic image quality across the visual field, its implications for eye growth, and manipulation with diffractive laser-treated contact lenses for myopia control"

Kehao Wang (School of Engineering Medicine, Beihang University)

"Biomechanics of the human eye lens and its functional interactions with surrounding ocular structures"

Henryk Kasprzak (Wrocław University of Science and Technology)

Professor Kasprzak is the original founder of the VPO Meeting and will deliver this year's welcome.

Topics focused on visual and physiological optics

The VPO meetings are special because they bring together researchers, clinicians and other professionals working in the combined field of “visual and physiological optics”, such as vision science, optometry, ophthalmology, biomedical engineering, ocular physiology, and others.

Technology and eye models

  • Cutting-edge VPO technologies
  • Innovative eye diagnostics
  • Subjective and objective retinal image quality
  • Modern procedures of vision correction
  • AI applied to vision science
  • Wavefronts and aberrations

Vision science & ocular physiology

  • Retina and subretinal layers
  • Tear film and cornea
  • Ocular biomechanics
  • Crystalline and intraocular lens
  • Anterior segment imaging
  • Contact lenses
Poster session at VPO14.

Abstract submissions beat record

VPO24 breaks the record for the number of submitted abstracts for any VPO ever. Because of the number of scientific presentations received and approved by the Scientific Committee, this year’s VPO24 will be a full 3-day event ending on Friday evening.

Oral presentation requirements:

Please prepare your presentation in a 16:9 aspect ratio as a PowerPoint file or a PDF. Remember that 15 minutes (including the presentation and a short Q&A) are allocated for each oral presentation.

Poster presentation requirements:

The poster should be in a vertical/portrait orientation. The dimensions of the poster should not exceed A0 size (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm or 33.11 in x 46.81 in) as this is the maximum size of the display board.
