The scientific program will cover all aspects and advances in ophthalmology especially in traumatic cases in a world class education, learning and sharing of knowledge environment.
Themed “Defying Obstacles, Preserving the Eye in Ophthalmic Trauma”, the APOTS 2020 meeting in Bali Indonesia will focus on new treatments, novel imaging and surgical techniques to provide evidence-based practices for preserving Asian eye trauma cases.
In addition to the scientific program, a rich cultural program comprising social gathering is also being planned, providing occasions for all delegates to enjoy Bali, our tropical beauty that is culturally unique and relaxing.
