Ophthalmological Society of the West Indies: A Growing Voice in the Region

Posted on August 1, 2017

Founded in 1990, the Ophthalmological Society of the West Indies (OSWI) brings together ophthalmic clinicians, regional representatives, and nurses, as well as government, corporate, and affiliate partners in its quest to eradicate and prevent blindness in the Caribbean.

A principal voice for ophthalmology in the West Indies, OSWI is working toward bringing regional training programs to international standards. To assist this goal, OSWI hosted the ICO’s Teaching the Teachers program at their 2016 Congress in Barbados and offered workshops for residents and a joint symposium with the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at their July 2017 Congress in Georgetown, Guyana. Furthering their footprint, OSWI is also presenting a session at the 2018 World Ophthalmology Congress® in Barcelona, Spain.

In addition to their work with ophthalmologists, the OSWI introduced the Ophthalmic Nurses’ Program in 2016 to train allied ophthalmic personnel in the region. Learn more about the OSWI.
