AVC April 2011

The Australian Vision Convention 2011 (AVC2011) has been launched with a comprehensive program that focuses on local optometry.

The annual event (formerly Queensland Vision), hosted by the Optometrists Association Australia (OAA) Queensland/Northern Territory division and Essilor Australia, will be held on the Gold Coast from 28 April to 1 May.

The program will be headed by Ohio-based optometrist Dr. Mile Brujic who will deliver five lectures, three of which relate to contact lenses. Associate Professor Michael Ibbotson will outline developments in bionic eye research underway at the Australian National University. Local optometrists will feature in the plenary sessions.

The OAA Board intends to dedicate a significant part of the Convention to remembering the Queensland floods of December/January, to paying tribute to the optometrists who suffered through it and to acknowledging those who have contributed assistance. An auction will be held to raise money which will go towards the recovery appeal.

The annual event (formerly Queensland Vision), hosted by the Optometrists Association Australia (OAA) Queensland/Northern Territory division and Essilor Australia, will be held on the Gold Coast from 28 April to 1 May.

Optometrists who have or will suffer economic hardship as a result of the floods will be eligible to pay a reduced registration fee to attend the convention. BOC Instruments, Designs for Vision and General Optical have offered a limited number of free registrations.
