Letter from the President

I have the pleasure of welcoming you to our new updated Meaco website. Over the past 30 years since its establishment Meaco has so far organized 13 international congresses in various countries of Middle East and Africa. The next Meaco 2019 Congress will be in Jordon, September 5 – 8, 2019.
Meaco has played an important role in supporting and organizing symposia, seminars and workshops thru its five subspecialties of retina, cataract, cornea, plastic, reconstructive surgery, glaucoma and pediatric ophthalmology.
Middle East Africa Journal of Ophthalmology (MEAJO) is the major publication of Meaco. It is now available online full text to be downloaded at no cost for everybody.
As we look to the future, many changes will shape the professional ophthalmic organizations. Sustainability of organizations requires engagement of young generations. Ophthalmology need to energize its organizations and make them relevant for the future. Ophthalmology must embrace the ideas of the young and invite them to help guide us. The senior can provide leadership and serve as resources of wisdom and experience
