   Welcome Message from Scientific Program Committee Chair

Dear Friends and Colleagues,  

It is my honor to invite you on behalf of the Scientific Program Committee, to the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) 2020 Congress in Xiamen, China, held in conjunction with the 25th Congress of Chinese Ophthalmological Society (CCOS).  

Chairing the Scientific Program Committee for years, I am delighted to have brought together the most qualified leading experts from around the world to keep our ophthalmic practitioners abreast of advancement of all areas of ophthalmology and visual sciences. Their talks have fostered a fruitful and rewarding Congress year after year.  

In 2020, with an anticipated number of over 1,200 international experts, I believe that the Congress will remain an excellent platform to equip delegates with new scientific innovations, knowledge, medications, surgical techniques and technologies, as well as to explore new friendships.  

I wish you all enjoy the well-thought-out scientific programs and I look forward to seeing you in Xiamen!  

With best regards,

Dennis Lam, MD 
Chair, APAO 2020 Scientific Program Committee
