It is my great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the biennial meeting of the Asia-Pacific Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (APSOPRS), which will be held in conjunction with 30th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) jointly held by The College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong (COHK) and the Hong Kong Ophthalmological Society (HKOS).
COHK and HKOS have jointly organized our Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) since 1989. This annual conference is the most important platform for our ophthalmologists in Hong Kong to share our newest developments and research in ophthalmology. This is the first time for our annual scientific meeting held in conjunction with APSOPRS conference.
Throughout the past years, APSOPRS has been very active in enriching the oculoplastic knowledge and surgical skills in the region. This year, we are honored to have Prof Geoffrey Rose from UK and Prof Don Kikkawa from USA to be our featured speakers. Aside from them, our program is fully packed with excellent presentations with a wide coverage of clinical and research in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as general ophthalmology. We will have plenty to learn with a programme graced by the top speakers in the Asia-Pacific Region and the world. Hong Kong is a modern, dynamic and vibrant city where the east meets the west, as well as the gateway to China. Aside from the scientific program, there are plenty of places that are truly worth exploring.
On behalf of APSOPRS, COHK and HKOS, I welcome all of you again. May all esteemed overseas guest have a wonderful and memorable stay in Hong Kong and I wish you all found this symposium enjoyable and fruitful. Thank you.
