OMEGA Optical Conference
What an enriching experience the past few days have been. I had the privilege of attending O=MEGA 23, which this year also included the 4th World Congress of Optometry. Held in Melbourne, this event is a pinnacle in the eye care industry, attracting experts from around the world.
On a personal note, I was thrilled to be one of 3 shortlisted for the Rising Star award, an award given to an optometrist who has displayed excellence in innovation, academic publishing, community outreach, or has otherwise distinguished themselves in the profession.
The conference was a blend of academic rigor and professional networking. Topics ranged from microglia studies to practical applications in optometric care. Myopia control remained a focal point, underscoring its growing importance in our field. With participants from various career stages and global locations, the diversity of perspectives enriched the discussions.
