ICBO 2018: Excellent optometric education

Held every four years, the International Congress of Behavioural Optometry (ICBO), was hosted this year in Sydney, by the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometry (ACBO) and the Optometric Extension Program, which was celebrating 90 years of continuing optometric education.

ICBO is not an identity in its own right but is a collection of international organisations of behavioural optometry and neuro-optometric rehabilitation associations. The Sydney congress had 22 countries represented.
