I am delighted to welcome all to the "Indian Optometric Association - 2020 annual conference".
Over the past few months, IOA has continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation and its impact on Optometry practice and education. Unlock 4.0 guidelines are in place, we are gearing up slowly to adapt new normal. Keeping the health and safety as primary focus, IOA has decided to conduct 2020 conference virtually.
The theme of the conference is "Evidence based Practice - Transforming Primary Eye Care" scheduled from 4,5 & 6 December 2020. This year conference has been planned to capitalise on our strengths and build on our commitment to promoting effective use of evidence-based practices in the field of Optometry.
Plenary sessions, invited talks, panel discussions, paper & poster presentations, chit-chat with i-faculty, potpourri of optometry case discussions, and practice management talks have been planned. In addition, activities such as crazy talks, creative mems, jingle writing, cartoon and slogan designs are planned to engage young optometry minds. You could be a part of this landmark event as a presenter, delegate, sponsor or as an exhibitor.
We are making every effort to make this experience seamless, relevant, and individualistic.
I look forward to seeing you at the Conference and Exhibition.
