2023 ASO Skills Expo

About the Expo

The 8th Australian Society of Ophthalmologists (ASO) Skills Expo returned to Sydney in 2023 after a short hiatus and following the successful 2022 event that was held in Melbourne.

Held from 2–4 June 2023, it was one of the largest gatherings of the Australian ophthalmology industry.

The ASO Skills Expo tests the thinking of the industry with robust debates on the key topics and challenges our doctors and their patients are navigating.

It is an opportunity to come together with ophthalmology peers to share the latest in best practice, knowledge and cutting-edge medical technology developments.
