Welcome to APAO 2020!



Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to the 35th Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology Congress, to be held in Xiamen, China, from April 22 – 26, 2020. We are glad that this prestigious ophthalmic event once again lands on a city in Mainland China after five years.

Back in 2015, the APAO Congress was one of the biggest and most significant conferences in the country, bringing over 10,000 attendees from 75 countries around the world to exchange their insights and experience in ophthalmology. Following the success, the APAO 2020 Congress will invite ophthalmic practitioners, including top-notch specialists, clinicians, eye surgeons and researchers, from the Asia-Pacific region and globally, to explore the latest scientific innovations, treatments and surgical techniques showcased at the event. We are anticipating over 1,000 international distinguished speakers and more than 10,000 delegates from all over the world to take part.

Xiamen, or formerly known as Amoy, is a beautiful port city in the southern China. It has both the prosperous facet of big cities and the quietness and simplicity of the fishing village. Its famous Gulangyu Island is a world heritage site and is vehicle-free with beaches and meandering streets lined with old villas and architecture. With no doubt you will not be disappointed by this “Sea Garden”!

We look forward to welcoming you to Xiamen in April 2020!

With warmest personal regards,

Prof. Ke Yao
Congress President
