Welcome Message from AAO President

  Issue 10 - February 2023 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, it is with great pleasure and excitement that I cordially welcome you to the APAO 2023 Congress in Kuala Lumpur.

I am very grateful and honored to be a guest and to have the Academy as a co-sponsor of the Congress. The annual Congress is a unique opportunity to interact with the world’s leading professionals and experts from across our profession. It is also a time to meet with old friends and share expertise and best practices with colleagues.

Over the next four days, I hope the discussion and presentations will lead to substantial achievements in the field of ophthalmology, both in the Asia-Pacific region and all around the world.

The organizers of the APAO Congress have strived to prepare a wonderful scientific program and an outstanding cultural and social program. I hope that all participants who attend this meeting will be able to absorb an abundance of new knowledge and make use of it in their clinical practice and enjoy a wonderful Congress for international friendship.

With warmest regards,

President, American Academy of Ophthalmology
