Get focussed on the future of optometry at the Orthokeratology Society of Oceania’s (OSO) 14th conference, at the Marriott Resort on the Gold Coast from 5–7 June. Bringing together a stellar cast of international and local speakers, the conference will present the latest theories on orthokeratology (OK) and myopia management combined.
Speakers include: Professor James Wollsohn, currently one of the world’s most significant optometry academics and a major contributor in two of the last decade’s most important publications – The TFOS DEWS II papers on dry eye, and the 2019 IMI papers on how to control myopia management; Professor Maria Liu from UC Berkeley, pioneer of the western world’s first myopia clinic; and Professor Langis Michaud, a world leader on OK research into maximising myopia management using customised OK lens designs; Professor Bruce Lan, from the AIER group in China, who will discuss his global work to collect data on myopia related environmental factors using ground breaking wearable technology; and Australia’s own Dr Kate Gifford, key author and committee leader of the IMI Clinical management guidelines report.
Unique to this year’s conference will be a large number of tailored practical workshops on instrumentation and specialist techniques that enable practitioners to gain hands-on experience applying the latest knowledge.
The OSO’s famous themed Saturday night party will mark the auspicious date of 6/6/2020, providing “the best night ever” – so be sure to get along.
