Welcome Message From
Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology President

  Issue 2 - June 2023 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my immense honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 2024 Congress of the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) in Bali, Indonesia, from February 22-25, 2024.

Themed “Beyond All Limits,” the APAO 2024 Congress in Bali will bring together ophthalmologists from around the world, and it is expected to feature about 800 internationally recognized speakers presenting their latest work and scientific innovations in the major ophthalmic subspecialties. An attendance figure of around 5,000 delegates is anticipated. 

It is impossible to have a successful APAO Congress without the hard work of numerous individuals who selflessly devote many hours to its success. I would like to thank all for their prodigious efforts. 

In addition to acquiring new knowledge and skills, the annual congress also provides delegates with an excellent opportunity to network and collaborate with peers and friends. Attendees can also enjoy beautiful and historic attractions, along with delicious cuisine and exciting nightlife in Bali. 

I look forward to welcoming you to Bali where you will not only get the opportunity to learn more about the newest discoveries, techniques, and developments in ophthalmology, but also gain unforgettable memories of friendships made and renewed. 

With best regards,

Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology President
