Welcome to 48th IOA Annual Scientific Meeting 2023!

Dear colleagues and friends around the world,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 48th IOA Annual Scientific Meeting which will be held at the Marriott Hotel, Yogyakarta from Thursday 24th to Saturday 26th of August 2023.

The theme for this year's conference is "MULIH JOGJA: Moving Upon Latest Innovation Holistic Eyecare", presenting the latest developments in science and technology in the field of ophthalmology. This congress is one of the key ophthalmology conference in Indonesia and we believe that this event is the perfect platform to share and acquire knowledge as well as to establish collaborations and friendships among local and international ophthalmologists.

This scientific meeting will offer main symposium, didactic courses, wetlab courses as well as oral and poster presentations and cater to a broad range of interests and specialisations.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we faced many restrictions in our daily activities and scientific conferences were held online to minimize face-to-face interactions. As we progress to a new era amidst the pandemic, we are excited to announce that this year's Annual Scientific Meeting will be held as a fully face to face conference, the first in-person annual scientific meeting since 2019.

Rest assured that other than acquiring knowledge from this conference, you will also get to explore the local heritage and culture in Yogyakarta, which is rich in historical architectural landmarks and exquisite delicious traditional Javanese cuisine. Don't miss out on exciting social events and local tourism attractions for you and your families.

Please mark your calendar to join us on this conference in the beautiful city of Yogyakarta!

With warmest regards,

dr. Purjanto Tepo Utomo, SpM(K)
