Exhibitor / Sponsor Information:
Each year, AAPOS conducts an annual scientific meeting at a location in the USA. Annual Meeting attendance in recent years has averaged over 900 professionals, including approximately 700 physicians.
The AAPOS Annual Meeting is the only venue that provides access to the majority of physicians whose practices are devoted to the care of children’s eyes. This group of physicians also provides medical and surgical care to adult patients with strabismus. AAPOS members are practicing ophthalmologists. Most of these physicians are not reached through corporate support or exhibits at general ophthalmology meetings such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) or American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS). This meeting represents an outstanding opportunity to meet, one on one, with this unique group of caregivers. At this meeting, products that help the children we serve can be introduced. Most importantly, personal relationships can be forged that will last throughout the year.
AAPOS is the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus. The organization's goals are to advance the quality of children's eye care, support the training of pediatric ophthalmologists, support research activities in pediatric ophthalmology, and advance the care of adults with strabismus.
