On behalf of the organising committee we are delighted to invite you to participate in the 2018 Neuro-Ophthalmology Society of Australia 34th Annual Clinical and Scientific meeting and the Neuro-Vision Training Weekend.  The meeting will take place on Thursday 13th & Friday 14th September and the NeuroVision Training weekend follows on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th September.

The tradition of the Williams/Walsh cases will continue. Local and international attendees are invited to submit a Williams case, a scientific abstract for original research or a shorter case for discussion. We also hope to expand the poster session, to accommodate smaller research projects and cases.
