The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists celebrates 50 years

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) is pleased to launch the RANZCO 50th golden anniversary logo. This year, RANZCO is celebrating 50 years of the College; 50 years of driving improvements in eye healthcare in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region.

Throughout the year RANZCO will be sharing insights into the past 50 years of the College through special interviews and activities highlighting the achievements of RANZCO members. RANZCO will also be looking ahead to what the next 50 years will hold for the future of ophthalmology.

”RANZCO is very excited to celebrate the 50th year since ophthalmologists established an independent college to advance their craft. A lot has happened in 50 years. Many hundreds of thousands of people in Australia and New Zealand have had their sight improved or saved by the skills of ophthalmologists and the innovative procedures that have been introduced in the past 50 years. Although this is a year of celebration and looking back at what has been achieved, it is also a time to look to the future and how ophthalmology can continue to innovate and improve the lives of patients in Australia and New Zealand.” – A/Prof Heather Mack, RANZCO President
