Our friends at the World Council of Optometry (WCO) and La Federación Colombiana de Optómetras (FEDOPTO) have announced the launch of the 1st World Congress of Optometry. This is the first global optometry conference and a unique and unmissable event for anyone in the eye health sector including community and hospital practitioners, researchers, academics and students. 

For three days in August (14th, 15th and 16th) the world's leading eye health experts will be gathered in Medellín, Colombia to share the latest ideas, research, knowledge and ideas from across the optometry sector. Delegates will have the opportunity to:
