Prof. R. R.Sukul
Chairman Scientific Committee, UPSOS
I am pleased to present you the scientific Programme for the 42nd Annual Conference of UPSOS at Bareilly on 1st and 2nd December 2007.
Friends at the outset I must thank you all for the faith and confidence shown by you in entrusting me with the responsibility of Chairman Scientific Committee, the charge of which I took over in November 2006.
Dear members I, along with my team of Scientific Committee have been and will be working to the best of our capability to bring out a balanced Scientific Programme which not only will serve the purpose of acquainting our members with the most resent advances in Ophthalmology and imparting the vision into the future but also caters to the need of our friends working in semi urban and rural areas, who have to continuously balance between ever increasing costs of modern technology and provide cost effective optimum vision care to the Society. At one and of the spectrum the programme brings to us the views from senior Ophthalmologists who have a vast ocean of experience with them and on the other hand it provides a platform for our younger Ophthalmologists who have a lot of enthusiasm, ideas, vision and ambition for the future.
Keeping all the views in mind managing a balanced Scientific Programme has not been an easy task and I must thank to all members of my scientific committee, specially Dr. Soby Pandey and Prof. Vinita Singh for their all time cooperation and guidance. My special thanks are also due to Dr. B. N. Chaudhry and Dr. Kapil of Bareilly whose experienced guidance and cool profile has effectively integrated the efforts of the Scientific Committee and local organizing Committee due to which we have been able to bring a galaxy of Ophthalmologists to converge at this meeting.
I am also over whelmed and to wish to encourage the visibly enhanced enthusiasm for participation shown by the members of UPSOS.
In the last I will like to have your cooperation, participation and guidance in our future and endeavor towards achieving furtherance of academics and patient care standards.
Thanking you Yours Sincerely
Prof. R. R. Sukul
