打開「視」界靈魂之窗 第15屆國際眼炎醫學會年會,首度移師臺灣高雄

【記者高婕/高雄報導】 第15屆國際眼發炎醫學會年會(The 15th International Ocular Inflammation Society Congress,簡稱IOIS),今(13)日起至16日止,在高雄展覽館盛大舉行,這是該醫學會成立30年來首度在臺灣舉行年會,約有36個國家、近700名國內外專家學者出席,共發表300多篇論文。

這場宛如眼科界奧斯卡盛會的年會,每2年舉辦一次,此次臺灣能在各國競爭對手中脫穎而出,取得大會主辦權,其幕後功臣是高雄醫學大學附設中和紀念醫院眼科部主任許淑娟教授。

專長視網膜疾病、葡萄膜炎、白內障手術及微創玻璃體切除手術等疾病診治的許淑娟教授,常參與各項國際學術研討會,不僅觀摩學習及交流臨床經驗,更積極爭取國外知名學者至台灣分享經驗及學術研討,以精進國內醫療水準造福民眾。2年前她於瑞士洛桑大會積極爭取國際眼發炎醫學會年會來臺舉行,當時重感冒發高燒的她,還拖著疲累身軀長途飛行到歐洲,與各國醫界交涉,終於如願成行。

許淑娟教授謙虛地表示,臺灣眼科是世界眼發炎醫學會國家會員之一,眼科醫學進步受到世界各國肯定,儘管有其他國家提供巨額獎學金,試圖爭取主辦權,但最後仍由臺灣獲選,誠屬不易,希望藉此機會與世界各大醫學中心建立交流平台,增進臺灣眼科醫學界的學術發展,並提升高醫在國際上的能見度。

此次年會邀請到全球著名的眼科醫師,包括現任IOIS理事長的法籍Bahram Bodaghi教授、史丹佛大學眼科學Quan Dong Nguyen教授以及有「葡萄膜炎界祖師爺」之稱的美國南加州大學眼科及病理學終生職教授、現任全球眼症發言工作坊理事長、前任國際眼發炎學會理事長的Narsing Rao,是眼發炎性疾病界最重要的國際會議之一。

Rao 教授及Nguyen教授,12日在許淑娟主任的陪同下,先行拜訪高醫,由吳登強副院長及醫學院長田英俊代表出國的侯明鋒院長出面接待,並談及未來雙方合作的可行性。

此次大會探討的主題之一是葡萄膜炎,據文獻,葡萄膜炎是已開發國家視力喪失排名前五名的疾病,泛指眼內葡萄膜發炎,包括虹彩炎、睫狀肌炎、脈絡膜炎等,疑因感染疾病、自體免疫疾病或不明原因所引起,還可能與其它全身疾病相關,在診斷與治療上是眼科醫師艱鉅的疾病之一。

而因長時間盯著電腦螢幕、手機,導致全臺約有600萬人罹患不同程度的乾眼症,也在這次會議中被廣泛討論,由高醫眼科主治醫師徐旭亮擔任乾眼症議題的座長,和世界各國眼科醫師深度探討乾眼症議題。

高醫眼科部在年會上有數篇重要論文發表,包括許淑娟主任的「葡萄膜炎的複雜手術分享以及老年性黃斑部病變最新研究」;張祐誠醫師的「虹彩炎和自體免疫疾病的相關性以及脂肪酸對於糖尿病視網膜病變的影響」;陳雅琪醫師的「眼窩發炎性疾病的最新發展」;高子恩醫師的「收集臺灣11間醫學中心的眼結核病人的臨床表現」,以及林韋寧醫師的「視神經炎在臺灣人的臨床表現」等,希冀各國學者專家透過此次會議來到充滿熱情的高雄,看到充滿醫學能量的高醫。
