Finding The Next Big Thing RANZCO Congress Expo

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) Annual Scientific Congress is a permanent fixture in the calendar.
This year hosted in Perth from 20–23 October, the Congress will feature speakers from around Australia, Singapore, the United States, and the United Kingdom talking on a range of topics, including refractive, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, retina, and cataract.
And while the scientific and social programs are the main event, a busy exhibition hall provides plenty of opportunity to catch up with suppliers and peruse the latest options to improve both your workflow and your patient outcomes.
To shortcut your discovery of the next big thing in ophthalmology products, mivision provides this review of key exhibitors, waiting for you at RANZCO 2023
