With thanks to the following sponsors:
The topic of the 2006 Registrars' and Save Sight Institute Conference is Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. Apart from our international guest speakers and interstate guests, the meeting will have a strong local contribution from paediatricians and paediatric ophthalmologists.
