You’re Invited to
he APAO 2021 Virtual Congress

  Issue 1 - March 2021 

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Over the years, the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) Congress has grown into the most influential and vibrant event and an exemplary effort in building a fellowship with a shared vision: driving ophthalmology forward in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

When confronted by COVID-19, we have helped each other and taken on the challenges in solidarity. Never before have the destinies of people in different countries been so closely connected. Keeping up the momentum, this year on 5 –11 September, we invite you to the first-ever APAO 2021 Virtual Congress to share ideas and expertise, to discover cutting-edge innovations, to advance all-round cooperation, and to build a closer ophthalmic community!

Our unprecedented APAO Virtual Congress will be a seven-day online meeting with a highly-focused Scientific Program chaired by Prof. Charles McGhee, for ophthalmologists and visual scientists to explore new medical technology and other virtual options in the era of pandemic.

The world is undergoing momentous changes unseen in a century. As we embark on a new journey, we look forward to welcoming you on board for a memorable and wonderful virtual experience!
Yours sincerely,

Ava Hossain
Congress President
APAO 2021 Virtual
