Dear Friends & Colleagues,

On behalf of the organising committee, it is my immense pleasure to invite you to attend the Singapore Primary Eye Care Symposium (SPECS) 2019 which will be held at One Farrer Hotel, Singapore from 23 to 24 July 2019.

The theme for this 2-day symposium is “Changing Paradigms in Primary Eye Care”. The symposium will focus on the many recent advances in optometry, especially the newer concepts and treatment modalities in the management of myopia. Besides myopia, a distinguished panel of overseas and local faculty will cover the latest on a wide range of topics faced by eye care professionals in their daily practice.

Currently in its third edition, SPECS has proven itself to be a meaningful educational initiative which all eye care professionals can upgrade and keep themselves abreast of the latest advancements in their field. It is also an excellent opportunity for all like-minded eye care professionals to come together in a large collegial meeting to share their knowledge and tips with one another.

I look forward to seeing you at SPECS 2019!

Leanne Lee, Chairman Organising Committee SPECS 2019
