This Award is provided through a generous endowment from Emiko Adachi upon her retirement as Professor and Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at Chiba University, Japan. Hers was a long and glorious career with many honours, culminating in official recognition from the Japanese government. Despite all of this, she remained extraordinarily proud of her long membership of ISCEV, and of her outstanding record of service to this society. This Award is given to an ISCEV member who has, over a long period, given outstanding service to ISCEV and who has made significant contributions to clinical electrophysiology of vision.

Eberhard Dodt Memorial Award (→GUIDELINES)
An award, in the value of €3,000, commemorates the life and work of Eberhard Dodt, in particular his help and encouragement, over many years, of young scientists working in the field of clinical electrophysiology of vision. It is awarded to the young scientist who, in the opinion of the Adjudication Panel, makes the best presentation at the Annual Symposium of the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV).
Statements of all recipients after 25 years were collected by Richard Smith and presented as an illustrated book to Frau Dodt at the 2022 Liverpool Symposium. Here is a PDF of the book, without photos.
Marmor Award (→GUIDELINES)
The Marmor Award for Clinical Innovation in Visual Electrophysiology is designed to serve ISCEV and the discipline of clinical electrophysiology by encouraging new work that will either 1) improve test practicality, e.g. speed, reliability, ease, cost or 2) widen their clinical applicability. The award is made to innovative projects rather than to individuals, and challenges recipients to continue the award-winning initial work to the next level of translation.
The Award is funded by an endowment from Michael Marmor, Professor of Ophthalmology at Stanford University School of Medicine, California, USA.
An initial award of $500 is made to promising projects. A second award of $2500 is made two years later to the initial project that most successfully translated the preliminary work into clinical value.
