It is a great privilege for Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia to once again host the 8th Conjoint Ophthalmology Scientific Conference 2018.
I, on behalf of the organizing committee, would like to extend our warmest welcome to all the speakers and delegates to this symposium which will be held in the heart of Kuala Lumpur from 14-16 September 2018.
Themed “Sailing the Stormy Seas: Managing Complications in Ocular Surgeries” this scientific meeting will cover the basic, important topics and also the latest technique in managing both widely encountered and the rare complications in ocular surgeries. We are fortunate to have distinguished international and local speakers to share their expertise and enlightened us with their vast experience in this field.
This meeting is a great platform for trainees and young ophthalmologists to gain useful knowledge in managing complications, which are a necessary part of training. We also hope that more experienced ophthalmologists all around Malaysia and this region will benefit from the stimulating discussion, plenary lectures, knowledge transfer and of course the wonderful opportunity for meeting new friends and renewing old acquaintance. This meeting takes place at a venue offering a great advantage of mouth- watering local cuisine and beautiful architecture of traditional Malay palace not to be missed.
This event will not be a success without the generous contributions from the industry. The UKM Ophthalmology Symposium committee would like to thank the sponsors who have shown their enormous support which is instrumental in bringing forward a fruitful symposium for all.
Last but not least, my heartfelt thanks and sincerest appreciation to the organizing committee members who have tirelessly worked for many months in ensuring this symposium a great success. The meticulous planning has finally bears its fruit of labour- “Sailing the Stormy Seas: Managing Complications in Ocular Surgeries”
Do block your calendar for this important event. We look forward to welcome you in September 2018.
