The South African Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (SASPOS) was formed in March 2013.

The aims of SASPOS are to advance education, research and quality of clinical practice in the fields of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, and to provide an opportunity for colleagues with an interest in these fields to meet.
