OPHTHALMOLOGY UPDATES! 2018

 

200 ophthalmologists attended the second annual Ophthalmology Updates! Conference held at the Westin Hotel, Sydney on 24-25 August 2018. This was the largest conference yet, and it was pleasing to see how far Ophthalmology Updates! has grown in only 3 years. In addition to being accredited for 12 RANZCO CPD points, it is also accredited for 12 Orthoptics Australia CPD points. Special invited speakers included Professor Ron McCallum discussing his perspective on visual disability, and Professor Xiaoling Liang from Zhongshan Ophthalmic Centre, China. Yet again delegates appreciated the casual and interactive nature of the sessions, and the live “Eventpoll”. Media coverage by Insight, Mivision, Eye2Eye (RANZCO), Eyewatch (ASO) and Research Review were all highly favourable. On Saturday night there was a wonderful private whiskey tasting event at Archie Rose Distilling Co, followed by an exclusive dinner Bambini Trust Restaurant.
