The key objectives of the APGS are to improve the diagnosis, care, and quality of life of glaucoma patients. Critical to this is education and skills transfer to all ophthalmologists as well as other medical practitioners.
The APGS and its founding organisations have run 24 highly successful regional meetings over the past 15 years attracting many thousands of delegates from all over the world. Throughout this time the meetings have grown in size and impact. The recent introduction of the APGS webinar and APGS Masterclass series has also highlighted the societies resiliency and dedication to improved glaucoma education and therapeutic outcomes across the Asia-Pacific.
The APGS is now the official glaucoma body within the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) and plays a key role in the glaucoma program for the APAO meetings. It is also a member of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) and World Glaucoma Association (WGA).
Current APGS membership is drawn from a worldwide geographic distribution and we continue to be a globally recognised society in glaucoma education.
