Moderators: Preeti Patil Chhablani, Ramesh Kekunnaya, Virender Sachdeva, Vivek Warkad


This symposium will focus on complex issues in strabismus including uncommon types of strabismus, re surgeries and complications of surgeries. It will also deal with pediatric cataract surgery and its associated issues and amblyopia. 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 in dealing with some really tough cases. A dedicated session on pediatric neuro-ophthalmology will also bring into focus this upcoming branch of pediatric ophthalmology.
