Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the Tasmania Branch meeting of the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists to be held in Hobart on 23 – 24 June 2018.

The theme of the meeting will be “Cornea : Unplugged : …….Cornea and its Diseases for the Comprehensive Ophthalmologist”

We have the privilege of getting experts in the field to come and spend an educational weekend with us in Hobart to help simplify the issue of corneal disease.  In addition there will also be time for presentations of interesting cases, audits and free papers.

The cornea is something that people of all specialities in the field have to deal with fairly regularly.  The spectrum and complexity of corneal disease is vast and often causes a problem in terms of diagnosis and treatment even to the very experienced specialist.  We need to keep abreast of new developments in corneal disease.

The use of new diagnostic equipment, understanding corneal topography, cross-linking, management of infective keratitis as well as indications for various newer techniques of corneal surgery, will be discussed.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hobart at this exciting time and I would urge you to register as well as book your accommodation and flights early to avoid disappointment. It will be a wonderful opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends, old and new, to share memories and get updated on the various news and information in the field.

With best wishes

Dr Nitin Verma AM
Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology
