Times are changing, and so is our focus. Refining the finer aspects of quality care and providing perfect solutions revolve around the axis of thinking out of the box. Today, the focus is to constantly identify the problem, formulate an innovative solution and bring about a change in the way we manage cataracts.

REH is proud to host a world renowned guest faculty - Dr. Graham Barrett, current and founding President of the Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. Amongst his innumerable contributions to the field of ophthalmology, and cataract / refractive surgery in particular, are the Barrett Toric Calculator and the Barrett Universal Formula. He is a teacher of teachers, and an innovator par excellence.

And of course, we will continue learning from some of the best of our own, with our popular sessions 'The Grand Guild' - video competition, 'The Indigenous Ophthalmologist' - Innovator's session, 'A Moment in Time' - Photography Competition and many more. So come join us for a day and a half of up-close personal interaction with the masters in Cataract Management at REH 'Colloquium 2017'.
