Dear MSO Members,
The newly minted MSO Cataract and Refractive Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting will be organising a quintessential session on cataract surgical techniques, phaco-dynamics and ‘challenging cases’ presentations. Look out for the invite and ensure you register early as spaces are limited and are bound to be filled quickly so ensure you keep the weekend of the 3rd and 4th November free!
The MSO is pleased to have supported the 2018 National-Level World Sight Day Event which recently took place in Johor on the 11th of October. It was a very well organised event which was equally well supported by other charities, associations and industry. Needless to say, we all need to ensure that we strive to protect the sight of our nation at large. In this same vain, the society thanks all the individuals who have come forward and provided us with information of dubious eye products whose sale is rampant on online stores and multi-level marketing modalities. We cannot, in all conscience call ourselves a progressive, first-world nation if we do not ensure that these practices are stamped out and our citizens gain access to equitable, evidence-based eye care. This should be the bare minimum that we, as members of this society can uphold and promise to our patients and fellow countrymen.
