Dr Parth Shah addressed Ophthalmologists from around the Globe at paediatric ophthalmology WSPOS worldwide webinar

The World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (WSPOS)’s fourth edition of the Global Grand Rounds was part of a jam-packed educational weekend on 19th, 20th and 21st February 2021.

The global live webinar series was found to be useful for all participants. The three-day event involved many experienced ophthalmologists, and an audience from around the world such as ophthalmologists, ophthalmology trainees, orthoptists, optometrists and other eye health professionals.

On the first day, February 19, 2021, there was an all-day session geared toward ophthalmology trainees. At this unique ‘Paediatric Ophthalmology in a Day’, I was honoured to inspire young minds and enlighten them on paediatric glaucoma.

On the second day, I presented an interesting case on congenital corneal opacity and glaucoma.



The educational event concluded on Sunday, February 21, 2021, which was dedicated to strabismologists from around the world. The Strabismus Hall of Fame was held on this day, where all the experts in the panel shared their priceless insights.
