Our Mission is to advance the art and science of the medical specialty of ophthalmology by promoting superior and ethical care for patients through education and legislative advocacy.

2020 GSO Annual Meeting Is Going Virtual 

Due to the uncertainty and concerns surrounding the SARS-nCoV pandemic, the GSO Executive Committee called an emergent vote of the Council to determine whether the organization should proceed with the planned programs and events. After working hand in hand with the Executive Office to thoroughly review all available options and poll the membership, the GSO Executive Committee determined that it is the correct message and in the best interest of the constituency to switch the 2020 GSO Annual Meeting to a virtual program. In the coming weeks additional information will be posted on the website for the GSO Virtual Meeting.
