A total of 5 new APAO member societies will be sending official representatives to the APAO Congress for the first time at APAO 2018 in Hong Kong. In this newsletter, we feature the Asia-Pacific Ophthalmic Trauma Society (APOTS), a new APAO Associate Member Society.


Informally formed in March 2011, APOTS aims to encourage dialogue and collaboration between relevant practitioners working in the Asian Subcontinent and along the Pacific Basin. Currently, Prof. S. Natarajan is president of APOTS and he will also represent the society on the APAO Council. He provided the following thoughts about joining APAO 2018.
