Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the Malaysian Society of Ophthalmology, I am delighted to invite you to the 11th Asia-Pacific Vitreo-retina Society (APVRS) Congress in Kuala Lumpur.
This is the first time that Malaysia is hosting this meeting and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful country. The scientific program will be first rate and allow retinal specialists from all over the world to update their skills. Additionally, we will include instruction courses and symposiums targeted at general ophthalmologists and trainees. Retina is one of the most exciting subspecialties in ophthalmology and the disease burden from myopia and diabetes is increasing worldwide. This Congress will be a perfect opportunity for you to learn the latest management of such important diseases, as well as network with colleagues from around the region and beyond.
Malaysia is located in the heart of the Asia-Pacific and is a melting pot of cultures. English, Bahasa, Mandarin and Tamil are widely spoken. We have an amazing array of tourist attractions, including rainforests, beaches, shopping malls, culinary delights and theme parks. The Congress will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, which is located right next to the famous Petronas Twin Towers. The convention center is one of the best in the world and is conveniently linked to many hotels, the Suria KLCC shopping center and a world-class aquarium. Malaysia is also one of the best value-for-money destinations in the world.
Do block your diary to attend this Congress and we look forward to seeing you in KL!
Dr Kenneth Fong
