Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to the 13th APVRS Congress, which will be held in Shanghai this year.

As one of the key ophthalmology conferences in the Asia-Pacific region, the APVRS Congress has served as an excellent platform to address the emergence of certain retinal conditions, such as myopia and diabetes, and provide programs to develop skilled ophthalmologists. It attracts leading vitreoretinal specialists from around the world to share their knowledge and experience.

With so many renowned speakers, the Congress will be a perfect environment to teach, to gain insight into the latest discoveries and innovations in the vitreoretinal field, and most importantly, to identify the ways to support our developing countries in the region.

On behalf of APVRS, I welcome you to our Congress and look forward to bringing you a rewarding experience.

Seeing you in Shanghai!

With best regards,


Prof. Dennis S C Lam
President, Asia-Pacific Vitreo-retina Society
