Dear Friends & Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the first Singapore Primary Eye Care Symposium (SPECS) to be held in One Farrer Hotel & Spa from 11 to 12 September 2017.

The theme for this symposium, “Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’s Opportunities”, will focus on the challenges faced by practices in the changing landscape of eye care in Singapore, as well as explore the exciting new opportunities that it brings.

Attendees of SPECS will have the unique opportunity to come together as a profession to define and advance the future of primary eye care in Singapore. The two-day programme will feature lectures on a variety of topics including examination techniques, various ocular diseases, binocular vision, practice management and medicolegal issues to build on existing skills and advance the profession.

On behalf of the organising committee, I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to attend the first Singapore Primary Eye Care Symposium.
