Since many pediatric cataract surgeries are performed by adult ophthalmologists, our symposia helped bridge the gap between adult and pediatric ophthalmologist, especially with regards to advances and controversies in pediatric cataract surgery.
We had speakers from Indonesia, USA, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Japan, and New Zealand; thereby making ours a global symposium.
Both WSPOS Symposia were well received.
