On behalf of the Committee on Continuing Education in Ophthalmology, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the delegates of the PAO Annual Meeting!

This year’s annual meeting theme is: “Inside Out”. This scientific meeting will discuss major paradigm shifts in how we address the eye care needs of our countrymen. Aside from technical and academic information, it will also tackle non-medical issues relevant to all of us such as the Universal Healthcare and how it will affect us, and government mandated vision screening.This year’s annual meeting will immediately follow the 10th Asian Neuro-Ophthalmology Society Congress (ASNOS) and 20th year Anniversary Congress of the Philippine Cornea Society (PCS)

But as always, this meeting will not be all work. The socials committee has made sure that we will enjoy our fellowship night for lighter pursuits.

I would like to thank all the speakers, local and international, in participating in this year’s annual meeting. I would also like to thank the indefatigable organizing committee in the conceptualization, design and execution of the program. Lastly, I would like to thank all our members who continue to support all our scientific activities.


Vice President, Philippine Academy of Ophthalmology
Overall Chair, Committee on Continuing Education in Ophthalmology
