Ophthalmology Updates! 2016

 

100 ophthalmologists met for the inaugural Ophthalmology Updates! Conference at the Heritage Ballroom, Westin Hotel on 3-4 September 2016. It was an overwhelming success, with the delegates finding the format refreshing, practical and informative. Not only was the academic program excellent, but delegates thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Art Gallery of NSW and conference dinner at the Bentley Restaurant + Bar.
