    Dear Friends and Colleagues

    It is a matter of great pleasure as the President, Ophthalmological Society of Pakistan to welcome you all to the 40thKAROPHTH, the Annual Conference of Ophthalmological Society of Karachi Branch, with 1st International conference on Medical Education in Ophthalmology and national symposium on Retinoblastoma. I am proud to bring you greetings from almost 3000 Pakistani Ophthalmologists who are members of this Society and are based in all parts of the country and abroad.

    The need for the eye care grows as the population grows and ages. Karachi being the largest, most populated and cosmopolitan city of Pakistan faces huge challenges in meeting these needs. It is also the business hub of the country, therefore the Ophthalmologists of Karachi face a large variety of patients from Karachi, interior Sindh and visitors from other parts of country and abroad. There is a huge workload that they have to cater for. The annual KAROPHTH Conference forms the perfect opportunity for all of us to hear the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment and how we can provide better eye care to our communities and especially in this part of the country.

    Our future generation of Ophthalmologists need to be well trained to meet these challenges and OSP led programs in collaboration with ICO and AAO and newly developed task forces provide an excellent platform for education, research and collaboration. I know the organizers of 40thKarophth have worked very hard to prepare an excellent scientific program and an outstanding cultural and social program. I am sure you all will be looked after very well.

    My best wishes for a great conference
