Dear colleagues and friends,

 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite all the practicing optometrists, academicians, researchers, industrial delegates, and students from all over the world to attend the 3rd Global Orthokeratology & Myopia Control Conference 2022 (GOMCC) from November 13-14, 2022, at the KLCC Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Originally intended as a virtual event, we have combined the 3rd GOMCC with the 3rd AOC to make it as a four-day event to accommodate the eye-care professionals who have expressed strong interest to attend this meeting as a face-to-face meeting.

Myopia Management has become significantly important for optometrists & ophthalmologists to combat the ever-growing myopia population among teenagers & children. This is especially evident during the Covid-19 pandemic periods where schools are closed & students are forced to do online learnings. These factors have resulted in higher incidence of myopia amongst this age group.

 

As a professional eye care practitioner, it is our commitment to provide solutions to manage this fast-growing problem, not just in Malaysia, but in the region as well.  In this regard, we need to better understand the myriad issues and to update our competence in managing myopia progression among the young population.

This event will consist of two workshops-cum-wet labs trainings on the first day followed by plenary sessions on the second day. This year, we are proud to present to you two workshops:

 

  1. The Boot Camp is designed specifically for the beginners or for those wishing for a “refresher” course, and

  2. The Advanced Ortho-k & Myopia Management for more seasoned eye-care professionals

 

Our scientific committee has worked hard to develop a wide-breadth programme as can be seen in the detailed programme chart.  There are also various learning and sharing sessions included in the programme as well e.g.  Vision Screening Projects in ASEAN.  We are very honoured to be graced by renowned speakers in their fields of specialty – both from Malaysia and overseas.

Lastly, a large-scale exhibition with more than 30 booths will showcase many latest products & latest instruments.  This is an excellent platform to learn and experience the latest in the field of optometry and to network with fellow colleagues and industry partners.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We hope you will join us to make the 3rd GOMCC & AOC a memorable event!

 

Selamat Datang !

 

Best wishes,

Tan Thok Chuan
