Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology—Tour.
—The Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology is sponsoring a good-will tour to countries of the Orient following the International Congress of Ophthalmology in Brussels in September, 1958. The purpose of this tour, which is to last approximately one month, is to hold joint meetings with ophthalmologists in India, Pakistan, Burma, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Japan. It is expected that this good-will tour will create much interest among ophthalmologists in the countries to be visited and contribute greatly to American-Asiatic medical rapprochement.Our government has given its whole-hearted support to the plan of stimulating and facilitating a continuing exchange of information and techniques, treatments and devices for the care of the ill and the blind.The reception of a group of ophthalmologists the world over will certainly be most cordial and will assure the success of this enterprise.Ophthalmologists interested in presenting papers at these meetings
