Established in 1990, the National Ophthalmology Centre (NOC) is a renowned leading institution in Laos. We intend to move forward from the tertiary level of eye care to become an excellent center of eye care in the future. We place emphasis on public relations and promote health initiatives among citizens, as well as providing training for residents and ophthalmic nurses and teaching medical students from the University of Medical Sciences.
The Lao Ophthalmological Society (LOS) was established in 2006. LOS is a member of the Asian Ophthalmology Society (AOS) and is also a member of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO). We are grateful for the opportunity to join APAO and look forward to successful collaboration and solidarity in the future.
