Thirteenth Dr E Vaithilingam Memorial Scientific Session- 15th and 16th March 2014
Pre-conference Symposium – Contact Lens – Clean, Care and Comply

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Elite School of Optometry (ESO) has been encouraging optometry research in India for the last few years in many ways. One of the main activities of ESO in this regard is the annual conference on vision science and optometry. In 2002, in memory of the late Principal Dr. E. Vaithilingam, ESO initiated a national scientific session to encourage optometrists and optometry students from all over India to present their research work. Every year, the quality and quantity of presentations have been increasing.
This year, the Thirteenth Dr. E. Vaithilingam Memorial Scientific Session is scheduled to be held on the 16th of March 2014 at the V D Swami Auditorium, Research Building, KN BIRVO Block, Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai. The event will last from 9 am to 5 pm.
What’s new this year?
Every year we introduce new research initiatives to encourage optometry research and practice among students and eye care practitioners in India. This year we have a symposium on “CONTACT LENS - CLEAN, CARE and COMPLY” on March 15th 2014 as a pre-conference feast for participants of Thirteenth Dr E Vaithilingam Memorial Scientific Session.
