Message from the meeting chair

On behalf of the Canadian Ophthalmological Society and the COS Annual Meeting Planning Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Toronto, Ontario from Thursday, May 31 to Sunday, June 3 for the 2018 COS Annual Meeting and Exhibition. This year our theme will be “Advocating for Evidence-Based Eye Health.”

As the premier venue for knowledge transfer in our field, we will host 19 international keynote speakers and will present 55 sessions offering new perspectives in ophthalmology including cutting-edge surgical innovations, state-of-the-art advances in ophthalmic diagnostics and evidence-based updates. Looking forward to the COS named lecture, this year we have invited Dr. Steven Bellemare from the Canadian Medical Protective Agency (CMPA) to speak on the topic of change in team-based practice and medicolegal implications.

Once again, we look forward to connecting with you in Toronto at the 2018 COS Annual Meeting!
