22nd Asia Pacific Optometry Congress (APOC 2019)
June 17, 2019 - June 20, 2019
These are interesting times for optometry globally: while new technologies and service delivery models are challenging the traditional practice space of optometrists, these same professionals are using them as practice and marketing tools to remain relevant and competitive. Will optometry ultimately survive the technological challenge, and if it does, will it retain its distinctiveness as a profession?
It is in this context that the 22nd Asia-Pacific Optometric Congress 2019 will be held at SMX Exhibition and Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City Philippines from June 17-20, 2019 2019. Appropriately, the event theme will be “Optometry Refocused: Adapting to Disruptive Technologies and Heightened Consumerism.” We expect optometrists from within and even outside the Asia-Pacific region to attend, not only to subject this issue to rigorous debate and decide on a common plan of action, but also to keep abreast of the latest technical and technological developments in the profession through the many scientific sessions and presentations scheduled throughout the event.
We are inviting you to be a part of this watershed moment for global optometry. We are confident that your attendance will be beneficial to your practice and ultimately to the public who are recipients of a better eye care service as we expect a healthy turnout owing to, among others, the timeliness of the theme.
