The fourth edition of the World Congress of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (WCPOS), a programme on new developments in the field of eye care for children, is set to take place in the city from December 1. This is the first time that India hosts the annual event.

The three day symposium at LV Prasad Eye Institute will see 1000 delegates from over 60 countries who will be presenting close to 500 lectures based on current research and innovations in the space of children’s eye care.

This congress will provide the ophthalmologists with practical knowledge which will be taken back to their countries and implemented. A lot of research is being conducted with a focus on reaching out to the rural population. We are looking for solutions which are affordable and economically viable,” said Dr Ramesh Kekunnaya, Head of ophthalmology at Jasti V Ramanamma Children’s Eye care Centre.
