North Queensland Vision in July will provide eye health professionals with the latest learnings and an opportunity to enjoy a well-earned mid-winter break in sunny Cairns.
Taking place from 1– 2 July 2017, the conference will commence with a series of presentations on contact lenses, beginning with a CooperVision sponsored breakfast on the latest developments. A lecture on contact lens discomfort and dry eye by highly respected Associate Professor Jennifer Craig will follow, and then a session on paediatric aphakic contact lens fitting by Jillian Campbell. Paediatrics will be another focus of NQV with Dr. Heather Russell presenting on paediatric ophthalmology and Assoc. Prof Leo Hartley will present the topic ‘What do the eyes of low birth weight, full-term babies (LBWFTB) show us?’
Sleep apnoea, ocular tumours, diabetic retinopathy, corneal graft failure and rejection, and meibomian gland dysfunction are just some of the other topics on a well-rounded program.
NQV in July will take place at the Hilton Hotel, located within the Cairns Marina precinct, alongside an abundance of dining options on the picturesque boardwalk.
With NQV 2017 being held during the school holidays this is a great opportunity for an extended family break with the kids. Cairns is the perfect location for school holiday fun, offering adventurous family outings to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and day trips to the local sites.
