Please see the below announcement on behalf of the World Council of Optometry President Mr. Paul Folkesson.

Dear all,

After numerous conversations with our partners in Australia, the World Council of Optometry has decided to postpone the 4th World Congress of Optometry (WCO4) until 2023 due to issues related to COVID-19 and possible travel restrictions. Ensuring that our members could attend WCO4 was at the heart of our decision. Please find attached the press release announcing the postponement.

We hope to see you September 8-10, 2023 in Melbourne for WCO4 and O=MEGA23.

Best wishes,

Mr. Paul Folkesson

WCO President
