Afghanistan Eye Doctors’ Society

Pediatric eye care in Afghanistan is at the lowest stage. Absence of an adequate number of Paediatric Ophthalmologists & the lack of equipment combined with very little / no attention from the Government & / Non-Government organizations has caused a stagnation in the quality of pediatric ophthalmology practiced in Afghanistan, thereby compelling children affected with eye problems to be referred to other countries for treatment.

The Afghanistan Eye Doctors’ Society’s board of directors is trying to improve the field of Paediatric Ophthalmology by conducting regular educational training for young ophthalmologists. Young Ophthalmologists are also being sent outside the country for super specialty programs. This will hopefully pave the way for better pediatric ophthalmology practice in Afghanistan.
