RANZCO’s 50th Anniversary Conference and Celebrations wrapped up one week ago at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. The conference is the premier platform for Australian Ophthalmologists to share scientific innovation.

Our Ocular Oncology Team (Drs Bill Glasson, Sunil Warrier and Lindsay McGrath) presented a number of oncology updates, as well as challenging cases and innovations in imaging. Dr Glasson was also involved in the International Development plenary session, to encourage and challenge Ophthalmologists keen to work in low resource countries. Dr Sing-Pey Chow was involved in an entertaining cataract debate, arguing about the necessity of antibiotic drops after cataract surgery. Dr D’Mellow chaired a glaucoma session which saw Prof Tim Sullivan discuss eyelid and orbital complications associated with glaucoma.

The highlight of the conference for many was the President’s Reception where Dr Matthew Cranstoun and Dr Lindsay McGrath received their fellowship certificates. The reception afterwards was a great opportunity for networking and socialising! Terrace Eye Centre looks forward to Brisbane hosting the conference in 2020!
