Dear friends and colleagues

On behalf of the Organizing committee, it gives me great pleasure and honor to invite you to the 5th Asia Pacific Ophthalmic Trauma Society (APOTS) Meeting in Bali, Indonesia which will be held from September 3-6, 2020. This meeting will be held with the Indonesian Ophthalmologist Association (IOA) as the supporting organization, in lieu of its goal in promoting eye health and development of ophthalmology in Indonesia.

Ophthalmic trauma represents a frequent cause of emergency ophthalmic visits and have a significant impact regarding suffering, impairment of life quality and the reduction of workability. We have invited many prestige speakers who have outstanding and major impact in the field of ophthalmic trauma management to share their experiences. Through the education, practice, research, and the learning of the development of management ophthalmic trauma in the world, I expect not only to have deeper understanding of it but also to help all participants further to establish, develop and execute the appropriate management of ophthalmic trauma based on medical context. We are honored to be given this opportunity to host the APOTS 2020 meeting. We welcome ophthalmologists and ophthalmic-allied health professionals from all over the world to join the meeting focusing on: “Defying obstacles, preserving the Eye in Ophthalmic Trauma”.

The APOTS meeting also provides participants with an excellent opportunity to building networks and collaborate with peers and friends and furthermore, enjoy Bali. As one of the top destinations in the world, our meeting in Bali will not only quench our thirst for the update in ophthalmic trauma knowledge, but also provide you with the tropical beauty that is culturally unique and relaxing. Bali has been one of the most popular and a perfect tourist destination in Indonesia and has offered a unique culture, beautiful panorama and wonderful heritage sites. Bali islands has beautiful jungle, long sandy beaches, warm blue water, crashing surf and many tourism activities as well as attractions

We look forward to seeing you at the 5th Asia Pacific Ophthalmic Trauma Society (APOTS) Meeting in Bali, Indonesia. I wish you have a superb time during the meeting and a memorable stay in Bali, Indonesia!
