APACRS-ACS Webinar
In collaboration with the Association of Eye Banks of Asia
In this new era of the COVID-19 pandemic, they say things will never be the same. Certainly, this educational webinar is a case in point, as we learn to learn virtually. However, our corneal patients remain, as do the problems of corneal infections and corneal blindness in this part of the world.

This special webinar, hosted by APACRS and jointly organized by the Asia Cornea Society and the Association of Eye Banks of Asia, focuses on challenges—and solutions—in corneal tissue procurement for keratoplasty, in following-up corneal patients, with the establishment of virtual corneal clinics, as well as updates on the latest advances on keratoplasty, infectious keratitis, and the management of combined cataract and corneal diseases.

This webinar is accredited by the Singapore Medical Council for 1 CME point (category 1B).
