The Brunei Ophthalmology Society was established in April 2019 following the recognition for the need of the establishment of a registered body to unify ophthalmic care providers, allied health professionals and related government and non-government organizations involved in supporting individuals with low vision needs. The society is a strong advocate of ensuring that all individuals in the country have universal access to good vision care and treatment.
The main motto of the Brunei Ophthalmology Society is to ‘Innovate, Advocate, Collaborate, Educate’.
‘Innovate’ is to constantly keep up with the latest advances in ophthalmology and vision science. BOS aims to introduce new ideas and methods in its practice to provide the best evidence based practice care.
In terms of ‘Advocate’, members of BOS are advocates for the prevention of all causes of treatable visual impairment. They act on behalf of their patients to ensure patients have optimal access to treatment.
‘Collaborate’ is to work jointly with one another, national and international organizations to uphold and improve upon the practice of ophthalmology and vision science in Brunei Darussalam.
‘Educate’ is to provide ophthalmic education for the ophthalmic community, allied health professional, nurses and the general public.
