Dear Friends and colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM)/ the Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium 2024 held in conjunction with the Asia Neuro-Ophthalmology Society Congress (ASNOS) and Asia Pacific Society of Ocular Oncology and Pathology (APSOOP) at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong, China, on December 6-8, 2024.

Every year the ASM/ Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium is one of the most exciting events co-organised by the College of Ophthalmologist of Hong Kong (COHK) and Hong Kong Ophthalmological Society (HKOS). This is not only an excellent platform for trainees, experts, and scientists from local and overseas institutes to share their expertise, research, and innovations in different disciplines of Ophthalmology, but also a good chance to reunite old friends and making new collaborations. 

This year's ASM is a special occasion as it marks the first time it will be held in conjunction with the ASNOS and APSOOP. While it is often said that "the eye is the window to the soul," it should also be recognized as "the window to the brain and our body." Guided by the leadership of Professor Carmen Chan, the ASNOS 2024 Congress President, and Professor Hunter Yuen, President of APSOOP, this congress presents a unique opportunity for ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, oncologists, pathologists, and scientists to collaborate and explore the intricate neuro-ophthalmic and systemic connections. We look forward to seeing you in the congress to learn, share and enjoy the nice weather, good food and beautiful views of our Victoria Harbour.

With best regards,

Dr Thomas Chiu

Chairman, Annual Scientific Meeting/Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium 2024


Dear friends and colleagues,

Neuro-ophthalmology is an increasingly recognized and vital subspecialty of both ophthalmology and neurology, given the expanding range of therapeutic options available for neuro-ophthalmic disorders. Established in 2002, ASNOS aims to promote education, research, and the practice of neuro-ophthalmology in the Asia region, paralleling the efforts of other regional societies like the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS) and the European Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (EUNOS). The ASNOS Congress takes place every 2 years, and the 12th ASNOS Congress in 2024 promises to be a remarkable event.

Dr. Thomas Chiu, ASMHK Chairman, and I eagerly look forward to welcoming neuro-ophthalmologists, ophthalmologists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons not only from Hong Kong and our neighbouring Asian countries but also from around the world. This Congress presents a fantastic opportunity to share the latest advancements in clinical practice and research within the field of neuro-ophthalmology.

We hope to see you in Hong Kong in December 2024!


With warm regards


Prof Carmen Chan
