Dear Friends and Colleagues

We just concluded a wonderful 32nd APACRS meeting in Kyoto, Japan, where we hosted over 1,800 attendees. Feedback on the meeting has been overwhelmingly positive, testament to the quality of the scientific content addressing the needs of Asian cataract and refractive surgeons and more importantly, their patients.

In 2020, the 33rd APACRS annual meeting will be returning to Singapore, the site of one of our most successful previous meetings. Uniquely for 2020, this will be held in conjunction with the Singapore National Eye Centre’s 30th Anniversary International meeting from 9 to 11 July 2020. It promises to be the anterior segment event of 2020!

We have themed this joint meeting “BEYOND 2020 – Progress to Perfection to showcase new, innovative, high-impact and cutting-edge topics as we progress towards perfection.

As always, our scientific committee is already planning a focused, relevant and practical scientific program as has been our hallmark.

Join us in Singapore for the APACRS-SNEC 2020 meeting!
