The inaugural HKU Ophthalmology Distinguished Lecture was held on the 15th of June 2021. We were honored to have Professor Walton Li, Medical Superintendent and Founding Head of Ophthalmology of the Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital, as our orator.
The evening began with Professor Wai Keung Leung, our faculty’s Associate Dean of Research, delivering a welcoming speech. Professor Walton Li then delivered an a highly enjoyable and insightful look into the history and development of Ophthalmology in Hong Kong, the Li Shu Fan Medical Foundation and the Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital. The lecture was followed by a Q&A session, moderated by Professor Christopher Leung, Department Head of HKU Ophthalmology, where Professor Li emphasized the need for collaboration between ophthalmologists of Hong Kong, both public and private sectors, academic and service sectors, for the continued health and growth of our specialty.
