Australian Ophthalmic Nurses’ Association (AONA) QLD held its 30th Annual Conference on 25 August 2018 in Brisbane.

Dr Sonia Ahn Yuen, as an invited speaker, presented a lecture on Oculoplastics & Paediatric Ophthalmology. The focus of the presentation was the challenge of differentiating the more common conditions, such as strabismus and ptosis, from the potentially life and vision threatening conditions, such as cranial nerve palsies and Myasthenia Gravis. The conference was an effective forum to share clinical experiences and knowledge. Dr Yuen noted the strong sense of comradery shared with the nurses within the ophthalmic community based upon many years of working together in the eye clinics and theatres across Brisbane over nearly two decades.

Terrace Eye Centre would like to thank the Ophthalmic nurses in QLD, as well as Australia wide, for the hard work and commitment we share as a team in caring for the community at large.
