2024 ASO Eye Surgery Showcase

The Australian Society of Ophthalmologists (ASO) will host the first ASO Eye Surgery Showcase at Australian Parliament House Canberra on Wednesday, 14 August 2024.

Coinciding with National Science Week, the event provides the perfect platform to showcase medical technologies and innovative treatments used in the management and prevention of eye disease in Australia.

This includes providing education on the prevalence, prevention, and treatment of the leading causes of blindness amongst Australians that includes cataract, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Members of Parliament, Senators, ophthalmologists, patient advocates, industry, and media are invited to participate in a lecture on eye health disease affecting Australian patients as part of the Showcase. This lecture will include unpacking additional, contemporary and specific focus on treatment within remote Indigenous communities, such as preventative measures and emerging treatments, with the potential to hear from first-hand patient experience.

Attendees will also be invited to participate in an interactive display of technologies from industry partners, guided by ophthalmologists, who will provide demonstrations. Where possible and practical, this may include live interventions using the leading technology.
