Letter of Invitation
The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the Optics Research Lab, the 30th anniversary of the School of Ophthalmology and Optometry, and the 20th anniversary of the Eye Hospital, Wenzhou Medical University. We would like to express our sincerest gratitude and highest respect to our international partners, friends, alumni, colleagues and students who have been caring for and supporting the development of both the School and the Hospital.
Since the establishment of the Laboratory, School (formally the Department) and Hospital respectively in 1978, 1988 and 1998, generations after generations, despite the lack of resources, have made many scientific breakthroughs and pioneered the “China Wenzhou Model” of higher education, which has now been widely recognized across the globe.
Today, the Eye Hospital stands among China’s Best Specialty Hospitals in Ophthalmology for several consecutive years. Ranking 1st in academic impact and 2nd in technological impact in the “China’s Most Influential Medical Institutions Ranking (Ophthalmology)”, the School and the Hospital are now home to the State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Optometry and Vision Science, and the National Engineering Technology Research Center of Ophthalmology & Optometry, pushing the boundaries of Ophthalmology and Optometry worldwide through the Eye system.
To commemorate this milestone, we will hold a series of events which include academic exchanges, lectures and symposia from September to October 2018. We cordially invite you to join us in the celebration of our history as we together write the next chapter of our prosperous future.
