Dear friends and colleagues,

As we gather here once again, it’s truly astonishing how swiftly another year has passed. We find ourselves confronted with fresh challenges and new conflicts that shape our daily lives, yet our commitment to providing the highest quality care to our patients and staying abreast of the latest developments remains unwavering.

With this unwavering dedication in mind, we are thrilled to host this year’s meeting and extend a warm invitation to all of you. Over the course of this weekend, we will engage in updates and debates spanning a wide spectrum of subjects within our specialty. One of the hallmarks of our meeting, as noted by many, is the diverse range of topics covered, reflecting the dynamic nature of our field.

For numerous years, this gathering has held a prominent position in our organization’s calendar. It is a source of immense pride for us when we hear from past participants who hold this event in the same high regard.

We warmly welcome you to this year’s meeting and eagerly anticipate another stimulating and enriching interaction. Together, we will continue to share our wealth of knowledge, exchange innovative ideas, and relish each other’s company in a relaxed and congenial social program.

Our deepest gratitude goes out to each and every one of you for attending this event. We extend a special appreciation to our esteemed speakers, whose expertise and contributions are the bedrock of this meeting. Without your dedication, this gathering would not be possible.

As we embark on this weekend of learning, collaboration, and camaraderie, let us reaffirm our shared commitment to advancing our field and, most importantly, to delivering the best possible care to our patients.

Thank you for being a part of this extraordinary community, and we look forward to a rewarding and memorable meeting.

Warm regards,

Theo Potamitis / Pantheo Director

The Alistair Fielder Prize in Ophthalmology

 Medical students have the opportunity to present at the Alistair Fielder Prize in Ophthalmology. This prize is now a well established competition named after Professor Alistair Fielder, who is the chair of the judging committee every year. The award will be given to the best presented case presentation done by the participants.

There will be two prizes, one for medical students and one for ophthalmic trainees or fellows at any stage of their training.  There will also be a prize for the best poster presentation.


The students work and present strictly in pairs. Each pair can do a presentation and a poster based on the same given case.

All the presentations must be in a form of a case presentation aiming to improve clinical practice or provide a message to be learnt from the case scenario. The judging committee will be consisted of Professor Alistair Fielder and three more consultants who will assess the contestants according their presentation skills, scientific importance, clinical content, originality and the message to be learnt. The judging panel will also ask questions to the presenters but no questions will be taken from the floor.

The Pantheo team is happy to provide cases and guidance for the medical students for presentations or posters like every year. Students can work in groups of two or three for the poster.

We will be accepting a maximum number of six pairs of students for the presentations and additionally four pairs of teams for the posters.

Priority will be given to the students that have never presented at Pantheo Conference in the past.

Declaration of interest should be submitted to Dr Katia Papastavrou by 10 February 2023 by email to or

Cyprus History

Cyprus is a small island with a long history and a rich culture that spans 11.000 years, making it one of the oldest civilisations in the Mediterranean – as evidenced by the many fascinating cultural sights, museums, monuments and galleries. Situated at the crossroads of three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa – the island’s unique geographic position has played an important part in its turbulent past since antiquity. Its Prehistoric Age inhabitants were joined 3,500 years ago by the Mycenaean Greeks, who introduced and established their civilisation, thus permanently instilling the island’s Greek roots.
