30th APACRS Annual Meeting, Hangzhou

The Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (APACRS) holds its annual meeting in different countries in the region. The 30th APACRS annual meeting will be held at the newly renovated world-class Hangzhou International Convention Center (HICC) at InterContinental Hangzhou from June 1–3, 2017. 

There is a Chinese saying: 唐莖慊,苟唐坑볼—“Up above there’s heaven, down below there’s Suzhou and Hangzhou”—a testament to the unique beauty of 鮫빤, or Westlake, a legendary location that has inspired Chinese poets and artists for centuries.

Together with affiliated regional and international cataract and refractive societies and in partnership with the Chinese Cataract Society (CCS), Chinese Ophthalmological Society (COS), and the Chinese Medical Association (CMA), we have planned another outstanding scientific program with live surgery, symposia, and MasterClasses. 

Join us in Hangzhou as APACRS celebrates 30 years of cataract
and refractive surgery education in the Asia-Pacific region!
