WELCOME TO APAO 2018!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is our immense pleasure to invite you to the 33rd Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) Congress, held in conjunction with the 29th Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium and co-hosted by the Hong Kong Ophthalmological Society and the College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, from February 8 – 11, 2018.

We are much honored that Hong Kong has once again been chosen to host the prestigious APAO annual congress, which has now become the premier ophthalmic professional and scientific event. Professor Dennis Lam is leading the star-studded Scientific Program Committee to invite over 1000 leading experts from around the world, with an emphasis on the latest cutting-edge scientific innovations, treatments, surgical techniques, and technologies. Our scientific program will be the best showcase for the theme of our APAO 2018 Congress – ‘Creativity and Technology without Boundaries’, with the clear objective of preparing today’s ophthalmic practitioners for the ever-evolving future of eye care.

Hong Kong is a hugely dynamic city with a unique blend of Eastern and Western cultures. Her panoramic range of tourist attractions caters for all types of visitors and interests. Additionally, the annual Lunar New Year preparations will be in full swing during the congress, including enchanting decorations, vibrant floral arrangements, and much, much more! 

We look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong, Asia’s World City, in February 2018! 

 

Warmest personal regards,
