The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) has launched the RANZCO 50th golden anniversary logo to celebrate “50 years of the College; 50 years of driving improvements in eye healthcare in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region”.
Throughout the year, RANZCO will share insights into the past 50 years of the College with interviews and activities highlighting the achievements of its members. RANZCO will also look ahead to what the next 50 years will hold for the future of ophthalmology.
“RANZCO is very excited to celebrate the 50th year since ophthalmologists established an independent college to advance their craft,” said Associate Professor Heather Mack, RANZCO President.
“A lot has happened in 50 years. Many hundreds of thousands of people in Australia and New Zealand have had their sight improved or saved by the skills of ophthalmologists and the innovative procedures that have been introduced in the past 50 years. Although this is a year of celebration and looking back at what has been achieved, it is also a time to look to the future and how ophthalmology can continue to innovate and improve the lives of patients in Australia and New Zealand,” A/Prof Mack added.
