Dear Friends and Colleagues
We have just concluded our biggest and best APACRS annual meeting to date in Hangzhou, China, where we hosted 2,800 physician delegates and 500 exhibitors. Feedback on the meeting has been overwhelmingly positive, testament to the quality of the scientific content addressing the educational needs of Asian cataract and refractive surgeons.
For the 2018 APACRS annual meeting, we are heading to the cool second city of Thailand—Chiang Mai, situated in the hilly north, away from the crowded streets and bustle of Bangkok. Chiang Mai is very well connected along international routes.
We are partnering with the Royal College of Ophthalmologists of Thailand (RCOPT) to organize this meeting. As always, our scientific committee is already planning a focused and relevant scientific program as has been our hallmark.
Join us in Chiang Mai for the 31st APACRS annual meeting!
