Optometry conference returns with high profile speakers

13/09/2017By Matthew Woodley
The Australian College of Optometry (ACO) will be welcoming two renowned keynote speakers for October’s annual national conference at the MCG in Melbourne.

Laureate Professor Hugh Taylor will present an address on Indigenous eye health service delivery, while Dr Daniel Chiu will discuss the prospect of non Anti- VEGF drug therapies that are on the horizon for neovascular AMD.

The event features 18 speakers, and will include a variety of sessions over two days, including an interactive symposium and panel discussion. It will also cover two new online education programs being released by the ACO: the Glaucoma Self-assessment program (ACO-GAP) and the OCT interpretation – ‘By the colours Lecture’.

The ACO–GAP program is designed to provide optometrists with the ability to self-assess their glaucoma diagnostic skills online, while the ‘By the Colours’ presentation condenses 10 years of OCT experience into a one-hour lecture.

All attendees are eligible for up to 40.5 CPD points including 22.5 therapeutic points, and will also have access to trade exhibitors present over the two days.
