33rd Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology 2018

All eyes were on Hong Kong during the 33rd Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) Congress, a dominant driving force behind ophthalmic development in the region, held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 8–11 February 2018.

With over 5,000 delegates from 87 countries presenting their latest works and scientific innovations in major subspecialties, APAO 2018 took the opportunity to enhance the overall conference experience by mixing business with pleasure and goodwill. They held a presidential dinner at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and organised an early morning charity run along the Central Harbourfront against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s breathtaking skyline with the goal of supporting visually impaired athletes.
