Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Retina is booming in the Asia-Pacific region with so many new therapies and technologies now able to address much of the blinding eye disease. In this golden age for retina, the Asia-Pacific Vitreo-retina Society (APVRS) is growing rapidly in importance. In 2015, July 31st to August 2nd, APVRS will team up with the Australian and New Zealand Society of Retinal Specialists in the wonderful city of Sydney, Australia, to bring on the best retinal meeting yet.
Under the able leadership of Dr Andrew Chang, a range of International experts will present current and future trends and achievements in this exciting field.
I hope to see you there.
With warmest personal regards,
Prof Ian Constable
9th APVRS Congress
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 9th APVRS Congress, which will be held this year in Sydney from July 31st to Aug 2nd.
The retinal subspecialty is going through a period of rapid development of new technologies. Using this opportunity, we will share our new concepts, new technologies, new treatments, as well as our common interests of specific eye diseases in Asia.
This year, the APVRS Congress will be hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Society of Retinal Specialists (ANZSRS) and the Royal Australian New Zealand of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO New South Wales Branch). I believe the meeting will be most exciting and educational.
