Théa Trophy Contest

TROPHY is an annual contest with the main objective of encouraging residents and fellows in ophthalmology to play a predominant role in their discipline by submitting their clinical cases in order to share their experience.


Since it was first launched in 2012, more than 1,400 YOs have taken part in TROPHY with a broader international interest every year, and the participation of new countries.

The Théa interRnational cOntest of clinical cases in PatHologies of the eYe (TROPHY) is designed to encourage presentation and communication skills of residents and fellows in ophthalmology. The contest is open to residents and fellows and takes place every year.

TROPHY promotes exchanges between fellows and residents worldwide and enables them to participate to a motivating challenge. The winners get the chance to present their work at international research-oriented congresses (EVER, ARVO).


With submissions from 22 different countries, a total of 213 cases were received.
Among these, Belgium was proudly represented by Dr. Barbara DE BRUYN, Dr. Iris VERMEIREN and Dr. Jasmien RENS.

And the 2022-2023 Trophy winners are…

Congratulations to all participants!

In 2012, Théa launched “TROPHY”, the “Théa euRopean cOntest of clinical cases in PatHologies of the eYe”. TROPHY is an annual contest which aims to encourage fellows and residents to actively participate in their speciality by sharing the results of their clinical cases and their experience. Each year there is a specific theme. Three winners are designated by experts who deliberate confidentially and objectively and are invited by Théa to present their clinical case at the Théa symposium which is organised alongside the ARVO congress.

The “Théa International Contest of Clinical Cases in Pathologies of the Eyes” promotes exchange between fellows and residents worldwide and offers them a motivating challenge.
