The Ophthalmological Society of Bangladesh (OSB) was founded in 1972. The main objective of the organization is to promote campaigns for controlling and curing eye diseases. Since its beginnings, the organization has worked for the well-being and betterment of ophthalmology and ophthalmologists.
The organization sponsors activities centered on the prevention of blindness. Regular scientific programs are held throughout the year for continuing ophthalmic education, in which young ophthalmologists are equipped with new developments and clinical expertise. The annual OSB conference takes place each year with a large number of attendees from Bangladesh and abroad. It serves as a platform for ophthalmologists in this part of Asia to share and expand their knowledge and ideas.
