Course Brochure

The 5th Annual Congress on Controversies in Ophthalmology: Asia-Australia (COPHy AA) is organized by ComtecMed and will be held from Feb 22 - 23, 2019 at Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai, China.

Course Description:
The great success of previous COPHy Congresses held in various countries in Europe paved the way for this regionally- orientated COPHy Congress – called COPHy AA – which has triumphantly taken place previously in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2015), Bangkok, Thailand (2016), Seoul, South Korea (2017) and most recently in Manila, Philippines (2018).

COPHy AA will be devoted to evidence-based debates and discussions amongst session moderators, speakers and the audience, all of whom will examine and analyze the most relevant and controversial issues raised during the course of 2018 and 2019 within the field of ophthalmology. This educational Congress will continue to discuss controversies in Anterior Segment, Glaucoma, and Retina, as well as other areas of ophthalmology, such as neuro-ophthalmology, ocular imaging, and uveitis.
Topics will include the treatment of retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema, the role of anti-VEGF agents versus panretinal photocoagulation in the management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, pathologic myopia, the current management of corneal diseases with the use of advanced technologies for corneal transplants, advances in ophthalmic imaging as well as novel medical and surgical glaucoma issues.

Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date recommendations to ongoing debates even when data remain limited, through evidence-based medicine, including expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts.

The 5th COPHy AA Congress will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of diagnostics, distinctive responses to treatments and typical complications. Many of the Faculty members will be local in order to discuss these typical regional problems.

Aims of the Congress:
• To promote excellence in the field of ophthalmology
• To provide an effective forum for discussing and debating unsolved regional issues by allowing ample time for speakers/audience discussion
• To promulgate ethics and standards of practice and treatment in the Asian-Australian region
• To bridge gaps between expansion of basic science and information, and their consolidation into clinical practice
• To make it possible for the industry to meet with outstanding regional experts in the field, and to update regional participants on pressing clinical and technological questions today
