Please join the ICO in congratulating Professor Dennis Lam, who was given the ICO Golden Apple Award for Best Clinical Teacher in Ophthalmology in the Asia-Pacific Region at the 2011 Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) Congress in Sydney, Australia.

Professor Lam has made substantial contributions to ophthalmic developments, particularly in training and education for the Asia Pacific region through his works in Hong Kong, China and the APAO.

Professor Lam established a medical relief program called Project Vision to address cataract blindness in China.  He also developed a program to train rural eye doctors who have little or no prior surgical experience, which has resulted in 19 charity eye centers in China and the training of 60 eye doctors with more than 60,000 cataract surgeries performed.
