It is 8 months since I took over as president of OSOS at Rourkela in nov 2021. Though I was elected as vice president in 2018 Osocon at Puri. Probably I am the longest waiting vice president or president elect who hold the office due to the pandemic situation. We are going to organise 38th Osocon in nov 2022 at capital Bhubaneswar .
It is my privilege to announce that our society is committed for academic, skill transfer, publication initiatives and participation in national and international events. The results are very satisfying. Last month in the monthly webinar we honoured the awardees for their excellent awards in AIOS 2022. They are the pathfinders and role models to the young ophthalmologists of our society.
Our team and members work with passion, perfection, precision and perseverance for betterment of members and society as a whole. we include the post graduate students of Odisha in academic, publications, and skill transfer activities.
I welcome all the members of the society and request them to participate in large number to make the OSOCON 2022 a memorable one.

Dr Sharmistha Behera
Chairman Scientific Committee
The COVID-19 pandemic presented unprecedented challenges to health care, from patient care to education to research. Many of our routines were upended with the exigencies of the crisis. The year saw tragedy, unique challenges in caring for patients; challenges in adapting our educational programs to the ‘Zoom-o-sphere’; not to mention real financial challenges etc. Despite that, we have had a very successful year now. In addition to our service to patients, which always takes first priority, eye care also encompasses a growing research program that is designed to focus efforts on new treatments and cures for disabling eye disease and a deepened understanding of the miraculous phenomenon that is vision.
OSOS aims at adding the 7th S; SMART to scientific approach
Looking forward to huge scientific participation by all OSOS members to share, learn and progress. The smart city Bhubaneswar awaits all you smart people. Please come and join hands. Together let’s pull this OSOS Scientific chariot to its destination.
