The Cameroonian Society of Ophthalmology, known by its French acronym as SCO (Société Camerounaise d’Ophtalmologie) was formed in 1983. The SCO is a member of the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) and the Francophone African Society of Ophthalmology (SAFO). Besides the usual annual conference, SCO holds regular trimester meetings to foster post-university teaching.
The aims and objectives of SCO are to bring together all eye care personnel in Cameroon in order to promote quality eye services, education and research.
The society has about 153 members, amongst which are 61 ophthalmologists. Other members include optometrists and ophthalmic nurses. Presently, there are 8 paediatric ophthalmologists and squint surgeons in Cameroon. We are inviting other ophthalmologists who are interested, to join us so that we can form a Cameroonian society of paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus.
