About Us
 
 
 

Elite School of Optometry (ESO) has been encouraging optometry research in India for the last few years in many ways. One of the main activities of ESO in this regard is the annual conference on vision science and optometry. In 2002, in memory of the late Principal Dr. E. Vaithilingam, ESO initiated a national scientific session to encourage optometrists and optometry students from all over India to present their research work. Every year, the quality and quantity of presentations have been increasing exponentially. Apart from conventional scientific abstracts, to encourage evidence based practice and to motivate the clinicians to build the researcher instinct, the clinician to researcher sessions have been introduced since 2014. This session will showcase the clinicians who will present interesting case reports/ series and the research question that has arisen out of it. The session also paves way for the budding clinician researchers to build hypothesis and research questions from the unique case(s) and also to convert the case report to publication in the future.
