“This is the first time a world congress on Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus is being held in India. We are also organising a yoga session at the World Congress for the first time to offer the delegates the chance to unwind during the busy Congress. This Congress will provide the ophthalmologists with practical skills and the latest knowledge which they will take back to their place of work, enabling and empowering them to make necessary improvements in their services,” said Dr Ramesh Kekunnaya, Head of Services, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Adult Strabismus & Neuro-Ophthalmology, Child Sight Institute, Jasti V Ramanamma Children's Eye Care Centre, LVPEI.

WSPOS is an international society with a focus on paediatric ophthalmology, strabismus and the interaction between adult and paediatric influences.

It is organising “Eye on the future” a day-long academic session featuring a host of international speakers on November 30. Close to 75 international faculty and delegates from India and abroad will participate in this symposium.

The symposium will focus on complex issues in strabismus, surgeries, pediatric cataract surgery and its associated issues and amblyopia, pediatric cornea, glaucoma and CVI workshops. One of the highlights will be the ‘What went wrong?’ session - which deals with interesting case scenarios, where the delegates can benefit from the experience of our faculty, he added.
