On behalf of the Committee on Continuing Education in Ophthalmology (CCEO), it is with distinct pleasure that I invite you to attend the 2017 Congress of the Philippine Academy of Ophthalmology (PAO).

This year’s meeting, with a theme “World Class Eye Care: A Regional Perspective,” will be held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City from December 4-7, 2017.

We have invited distinguished local and international speakers to give valuable insights on ocular disease diagnosis and management, which may be distinct in the region. Topic highlights of each subspecialty society as well as important dates related to the meeting are enclosed in this announcement.

I look forward to a productive meeting and I hope that this will be a good opportunity for us to exchange views, share experiences and reinforce ties with each other. Your participation and your contribution will be our strength.


Vice President, Philippine Academy of Ophthalmology
