OPHTHALMOLOGY UPDATES! 2017

 

150 ophthalmologists attended the second annual Ophthalmology Updates! Conference held at the Westin Hotel, Sydney on 29-30 July 2017. Yet again, it was an overwhelming success, with attendees coming from NSW, ACT, Queensland, Victoria, New Zealand and even Canada! Delegates appreciated the casual and interactive nature of the sessions, and the introduction of a live “Eventpoll”. Medica coverage by Insight and Mivsion ophthalmic magazines were highly favourable. On Saturday night there was a fascinating private tour of Elizabeth Bay House under candlelight, followed by a degustation dinner at the Barangaroo restaurant, 12-micron.
