On behalf of The College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong, it gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest welcome and invitation to you to our 31st Annual Scientific Meeting Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium 2019 held in conjunction with Greater Bay Ophthalmology Conference in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on December 14-15, 2019.

It has been the tradition of The College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong (COHK) and The Hong Kong Ophthalmological Society (HKOS) to hold our annual scientific meeting in around December every year since 1989 to foster exchange of knowledge and researches idea and results for our member ophthalmologists of Hong Kong and beyond.

Throughout the years, we had great pleasure to have hosted the World Ophthalmology Congress with over 13,000 delegates from all over the world in year 2008 and Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology Congress with over 5,000 delegates joining us in February 2018 in conjunction with our Annual Scientific Meetings.

This year we are very honoured to have invited four distinguished keynote speakers, Professor Ohno-Matsui, Professor Kazuaki Kadanosono, Professor Christopher Liu and Dr. Jason Yam to share their expertise on our theme topic of Myopia this year.

Hong Kong- a small and efficient city, is one member city of the Greater Bay area, with the development of transport and other infrastructure in the Greater Bay area, we are glad to bring experts from other Greater Bay cities and for the very first time to organize the conjoint symposium with The Greater Bay Area Ophthalmologist Alliance. We hope this symposium can bring new areas of collaboration in knowledge exchange and to effect the synergistic effect of the Greater Bay area and make major contributions to development of Ophthalmology in the future.

May I once again extend my warmest invitation to you to join our first Conjoint meeting with Greater Bay experts in December 2019.

这些年来,我们很高兴在2008年主办了世界眼科大会,吸引来自世界各地的13,000多名眼科医生及同业代表参与,以及于2018年2月香港举行的亚太眼科学术大会,亦有超过5,000名代表参加了我们的年度学术会议。

今年我们非常荣幸邀请了四位杰出的主题演讲人,Ohno-Matsui教授,Kazuaki Kadanosono教授,Christopher Liu教授 和 任卓升 教授,分享他们对于近视及其关连疾病的专业知识。

香港是一个小型而高效率的城市,是大湾区的一个成员城市,随着大湾区交通和其它基础设施的发展,我们很高兴邀请了其它大湾城市的专家,并首次与粤港澳大湾区眼科医师联盟 组织联合研讨会。我们希望本次研讨会能够促进眼科知识交流及带来新的科研合作领域,实现大湾区的协同效应,为今后眼科的发展做出重大贡献。

Welcome Message from HKOS

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of The Hong Kong Ophthalmoloigcal Society (HKOS), we give our greatest welcome to you all in joining our 31st Annual Scientific Meeting Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium 2019 held in conjunction with Greater Bay Ophthalmology Conference (GBO-ASMHK).

The HKOS is one of the oldest medical organisations in Hong Kong and certainly the oldest ophthalmological organisation consisting of more than 350 members. Since HKOS was formed in 1954, we are committed to uphold a high professional standard of ophthalmic practice and increase public awareness of common and sight threatening eye diseases in our community. It is also our mission to nurture our young generation to be the captain of the eye care team, leading and safeguarding the eye health of Hong Kong citizens.

This year, HKOS actualizes these aims by starting the first conjoint conference with The Guangdong Hong Kong Macau Ophthalmologists Alliance ( 粵港澳大灣區眼科醫師聯盟), inviting leading experts from around the world, particularly from Greater Bay area, to address issues related to increasing myopia prevalence around Asia Pacific region. We are very much honoured to have support from local universities, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong University, to have specific symposiums for delivering cutting edge and in depth ophthalmic information to delegates. Furthermore, we start our first Hong Kong Young Ophthalmologist Symposium, establishing an international platform for future pillars to excel their strengths and promote academic work.

To celebrate the 65th anniversary of HKOS and 25th anniversary of The College of Ophthalmologists of Hong Kong, we incorporate the celebration elements into this year Gala dinner. We hope our guests and speakers, not only can enjoy the numerous tourist attractions of this dynamic city, but also experience our fulfilling history of Hong Kong Ophthalmological Development.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our organizing committee members for your untiring efforts and to all invited speakers for your enlightenments to this year symposium. We thank every delegates here for your coming to make this conference possible and meaningful.

We look forward to seeing you at our first conjoint function with Greater Bay experts and special anniversary year event!
