14th OSO Conference 5–7 June 2020

Get focussed on the future of optometry at the Orthokeratology Society of Oceania’s (OSO) 14th conference, at the Marriott Resort on the Gold Coast from 5–7 June. Bringing together a stellar cast of international and local speakers, the conference will present the latest theories on orthokeratology (OK) and myopia management combined.

Speakers include: Professor James Wollsohn, currently one of the world’s most significant optometry academics and a major contributor in two of the last decade’s most important publications – The TFOS DEWS II papers on dry eye, and the 2019 IMI papers on how to control myopia management; Professor Maria Liu from UC Berkeley, pioneer of the western world’s first myopia clinic; and Professor Langis Michaud, a world leader on OK research into maximising myopia management using customised OK lens designs; Professor Bruce Lan, from the AIER group in China, who will discuss his global work to collect data on myopia related environmental factors using ground breaking wearable technology; and Australia’s own Dr Kate Gifford, key author and committee leader of the IMI Clinical management guidelines report.

Unique to this year’s conference will be a large number of tailored practical workshops on instrumentation and specialist techniques that enable practitioners to gain hands-on experience applying the latest knowledge.

The OSO’s famous themed Saturday night party will mark the auspicious date of 6/6/2020, providing “the best night ever” – so be sure to get along.
