O=MEGA19 Clinical Program Out

An early bird registration fee of AU$399 is available for O=MEGA19 until 23 April, 2019.

Presented by Optometry Victoria and ODMA, O=MEGA19 will take place from 19–21 July 2019, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

O=MEGA19’s conference will be the strongest presented in Australia for many years with cutting edge clinical speakers from Australia and around the world in a dual stream format, including twin keynote lectures, and breakout sessions.

In the contact lens area David Foresto will lecture on novel and unusual uses of contact lenses, while Gavin O’Callaghan will discuss the use of scleral contact lenses. In paediatrics, Lionel Kowal will look at how tropias should be managed by optometrists, and Rod Baker will provide expertise on emmetropisation and broader developmental considerations in early childhood, including how to approach a child with literacy difficulties in early primary school.

Professor Erica Fletcher will provide an update on the treatment and management of early age related macular degeneration, A/Professor Bang Bui will speak about how blood pressure alters glaucoma risk, and A/Professor Jennifer Craig will speak about the rapidly emerging field of dry eye disease, including detection and treatment options.

Over 48 CPD points are available – view the full program at www.omega19.com.au/conference

Optometrists can attend the clinical conference (fees apply) including the trade show, or the free trade show only. A series of optional, non-clinical masterclasses relevant to optical dispensers, practice management staff, and optometrists are available for $55 per session.
