The 31st Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology Congress (APAO 2016) in conjunction with the 57th Annual Meeting of the Ophthalmological Society of Chinese Taipei was held in Taipei on March 24-27, 2016. The meeting was co-hosted by the European Society of Ophthalmology.

At this meeting, WSPOS presented two sessions. The first was titled “Video Vonders”. Among the topics discussed were ‘In Search of the Paediatric Angle: An Outside Perspective’, ‘TIPP Capsulorhexis’, Cataract/PPM Removal & Triamcinolone Acetonide – Assisted Vitrectomy In pediatric Cataract Surgery’.

The second was titled “Thinking outside the box”. Among the topics discussed were ‘Paediatric Infectious Keratitis’, ‘What Does IATS mean in the Asia Pacific?’, ‘Oral Cyclosporine For VKC’, ‘Bag-in-the-lens for Pediatric Cataract surgery’, ‘Juvenile Glaucoma: more common than you think’ and ‘My Eye Gym: a fun way to do Orthoptic Exercises’. Both sessions finished off with a panel discussion. Both sessions were chaired by J. Elder, AUSTRALIA, K. Nischal, USA/UK, and T. Tsai, TAIWAN.

The symposium was very well received by the delegates who felt that the topics were refreshing and different. Both sessions ended with an interactive session between the delegates and the speakers.
