President’s Invitation

On behalf of Orthoptics Australia I am pleased to welcome you to the 73rd Annual Scientific Conference website.

The conference is shaping up to be yet another high quality and well managed event. This year the conference schedule will be slightly different from previous years beginning with the opening address on the Sunday morning, welcome drinks Sunday night and concluding with the conference dinner on the Tuesday night.

Opening the conference this year is an outstanding Keynote Speaker Michelle Gallaher, co-founder and Director of The Social Science. Michelle began working as an orthoptist and later broadened her career in business and marketing. Her talk is guaranteed to be engaging and inspiring.

Linda Santamaria Senior Orthoptist and Manager, Monash Health Ophthalmology Department; Adjunct Research Fellow, Monash University Department of Surgery; Co-Editor in Chief, Australian Orthoptic Journal, has also been invited to present the Patricia Lance Lecture.

This year the conference conveners Donna Corcoran and Karen Mill have also organised a fantastic social program to include welcome drinks at Alto Event Space and also the conference dinner at Melbourne Park Function Centre.

Looking forward to seeing you in Melbourne in November.

Message from Organising Committee

Welcome to Melbourne, one of the world’s “most liveable cities”, for the Orthoptics Australia 2016 Annual Scientific Conference.

We invite you to interact with colleagues, share knowledge and experiences, ask questions and meet new friends.

Our Scientific Program committee have developed a stimulating program which includes a great selection of invited speakers. We hope that all delegates will leave with new ideas, scientific skills and clinical knowledge.

Melbourne is a wonderful city to visit and explore. There is always something to do whether you are walking along Southbank, taking in sights on the City Circle Tram or touring the MCG.

Our social activities begin with the Welcome Reception which will be in the heart of the city at Alto above the Melbourne GPO. Our conference dinner will see us at the home of the Australian Grand Slam Tennis Open, Melbourne Park.

We are confident that you will find the conference informative and the social program outstanding.

Enjoy and embrace your time!!!
