We are pleased to share with you that the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) is organizing its eleventh Asia-Pacific Eye Care Week in the third week of October, from 11 – 17 October 2021, in conjunction with World Sight Day 2021 (14 October 2021).
This year, the Public Education Standing Committee has proposed two major themes for the event, namely, ‘Eye Involvements and Symptoms from COVID-19 Infection’ and ‘Optic Neuritis’. We are much delighted to have our Public Education Standing Committee and Asian Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (ASNOS), to co-organize the 2021 Eye Care Week and to help produce a comprehensive set of educational materials and media kit.
Member societies are invited to use the reference materials for public educational purposes during the 11th Asia-Pacific Eye Care Week. Where appropriate, member societies are encouraged to translate the educational materials and media kit into the local language for more effective communication.
Please do also share with us the public educational and community service activities you will be organizing in your locality during this period.
