“The Strabos Institute represents the greatest Strabismus initiative in South America in recent years.”
This statement was made by Dr. Fernando Prieto-Díaz, an exponent in Argentinian strabology, during his conference titled “An update on strabismus from South America” at the 4th “World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus” Congress, held in Hyderabad, India, in December 2017, a group of whose Scientific Commission I am part.
This statement fills us with pride, but also with the sentiment of the undertaken responsibility. It is an acknowledgment of the path traveled by the Strabos Institute since its foundation on the search of excellence in the qualification and training of professionals in these fields, the encouragement of research, and providing appropriate treatment for socially vulnerable patients.
To achieve these goals, there are several actions conducted annualy, and the growth of the Strabos Institute can be felt with the opening of our headquarters, giving us greater breadth. On our website, you can learn about each of our actions.
I offer my sincerest thanks to the colleagues of the Executive Board for believing in this dream, the members of the Advisory and Fiscal Councils for their dedication and trust in the guidance of the Institute, and to our staff and volunteers, who are the fuel for the best operation of our day-to-day activities. I am deeply proud of the entire team and, with everyone’s help, we will together turn our plans into reality and make a difference in Teaching, Social Action, and Research on Strabismus. Finally, our thanks to the donors, sponsors, partners and supporters, without whom our activities would not be feasible.
To the future!
