Best Ophthalmology Conference Meet 2022..
It is with great pleasure to invite you to The 5th Annual Scientific Conference of The Ophthalmological Society of Kenya that is scheduled for 25th and 26th November 2022 at The Grand Royal Swiss Hotel in Kisumu City.
I thank all the participants and support of all sponsors of the 4 th Annual Scientific Congress of The Ophthalmological Society of Kenya in Mombasa. Last year’s conference theme was Integrated People Centered Eye Care (IPCEC) was a success with 132 delegates, 13 exhibitors and sponsors.
There was a total of 35 presentations. The turnout of delegates was high despite the COVID pandemic. It was a welcome break from two years of no physical scientific meetings. Mombasa was also the furthest location that an OSK conference has ever been hosted. A new category of image competition was introduced whose goal was to encourage photo documentation of cases seen in Kenya that will eventually be published as an Atlas of Ophthalmology in Kenya.
This year the conference will be at Kisumu City, the third largest city in Kenya. Kisumu is located West of Kenya at the shores of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and the World’s second largest freshwater lake after Lake Superior in North America by surface area. Kisumu is easily accessible through Kisumu International airport that has regular flights from Nairobi and Mombasa, rail, and road transport. Kisumu thus serves as a perfect destination for the 5th OSK conference in an endeavor to ensure that OSK explores different regions in Kenya which it draws its members from.
