Contrast rebalancing treatments that force both eyes of amblyopic children to work together may provide better outcomes than patching in terms of visual acuity of the affected eye while also enhancing stereoacuity, Krista Kelly PhD told the 2020 WSPOS Virtual Meeting.

Education Case Report Quiz & Expert Opinions
Bi-monthly, we present a survey based medical quiz to our members. We request them to answer the question(s) asked by selecting one of the options provided at the end of the presentation. The case presentation is also sent to a few established / renowned ophthalmologists asking them for their opinion.
As both sets of these opinions are important, we compile them for each case and include it in the next newsletter.
A full list of cases and opinions are available on the left.
The World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (WSPOS) was established in 2008. WSPOS has a collegial ethos which allows the society to discuss important and controversial matters in the field of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
WSPOS is an international society which recognises that the majority of eye care delivered to children all over the world come from adult ophthalmic surgeons who see children, as well as dedicated paediatric ophthalmologists.
WSPOS also notes that the expertise in paediatric ophthalmology is a global responsibility. For this reason we have been invited to participate in major ophthalmological meetings including ESCRS, ASCRS, AAO, WOC and SOE.
Under the guidance of its Executive and Scientific Bureaus, the society gives adult ophthalmic surgeons who are taking the time to look after children the opportunity to discuss their expertise and their problems with paediatric ophthalmologists.
In turn, paediatric ophthalmologists can learn from their adult counterparts about new techniques and procedures.
The world of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus is constantly changing and our challenge is to ensure that our members are informed of the latest developments and innovations.
We also recognise that collaboration and communication are essential for the development of the society and our congresses and sub-specialty days allow us to network with key opinion leaders in all areas of ophthalmology.
