Respected Seniors and Dear Friends,
With great pride and humility I am taking over as General Secretary of Kerala Society of Ophthalmic Surgeons. Ours is, beyond any doubt one of the most vibrant medical societies in India. Our academic activities are second to none. Last year as many as 28 CME programs were conducted under the aegis of KSOS. Our members have brought laurels National and International. Drishti, our Annual Conference maintains the highest academic standards. I wish to congratulate my immediate predecessor Dr. Thomas Cherian for his excellent track record. I promise that I would follow his footsteps to continue all efforts to elevate KSOS to greater heights. With the blessings of my presidents Dr. Radha Ramanan and Dr. S Sasikumar , I wish to get KSOS involved also in fields other than academics - to move to fresh fields and pastures new. We as a Society should take up popular activities through which the masses of Kerala will be benefited enormously. We are envisaging novel schemes to start Low Vision Centers which, in addition to providing Low Vision Aids, will address the question of rehabilitation too. There will be one or two centers in each district to be supported by KSOS. We will also give shape to helplines in order to assist those who have recently turned blind. KSOS also has in mind the conduct of a survey on practice patterns in Kerala.
Anticipating your whole hearted support and co-operation.
