Design Your Own AVC 2017

Optometrists are invited to attend the 2017 Australian Vision Convention, Optometry Queensland / Northern Territory’s annual education conference, held on the Gold Coast.

This year’s event, from 22-23 April, offers 43 CPD points delivered over two days by 25 distinguished speakers. Clinical lectures, hands on workshops and a dedicated dispensers program will enable delegates to create their own learning program to suit their needs.

Speakers include Dr. Lindsay McGrath, Associate Professor Graham Lee, Dr. David Hilford, Dr. Emily Pieterse, Dr. Isabelle Jalbert, Dr. Mark Chiang, Dr. Sunil Warrier, Professor Fiona Stapleton, Dr. Andrew Laming MP, and Dr. Sharon Oberstein.

A wide ranging clinical lecture program will ensure optometrists are able to pursue their interests and brush up on the latest when it comes to contact lens related red eye, driving with poor vision, microbial keratitis,
dry eye, glaucoma, myopia control and more.

Currently 285 million people are visually impaired, of which 55 million reside in India

AVC is renowned for its social program and this year will be no different. Catch up with old friends and make some new ones at networking events such as our Carnivale dinner spectacular held at Warner Bros. Movie World.

AVC will be held at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, which was recently awarded Best Deluxe Accommodation in Queensland by the Queensland Hotel Association.
