In the last two decades, Ophthalmic plastic surgery has earned its special identity in Indian ophthalmology. The skilled oculoplastic surgeons of the yesteryears nurtured their interest and spread the art to others. Today, this elite group has taken the shape of a healthy organization, the Oculopastics Association of India (OPAI). Take a moment to travel down the memory lane to the Orbit meeting in the year 1987. It was during this meeting that the "Orbit Society of India" was formally founded. The name was changed to Orbit and Oculoplasty Association of India during the All India Ophthalmological Society Meeting, and formally assumed its current title Oculoplastics Association of India (OPAI)

After my Introductory Message a few months back, I was extremely enthusiastic that the Forum would kick off in a ‘ BIG WAY ‘ ….. Alas…..It has been disappointing. Despite many requests it has not. No one can be blamed since we find it much easier and convenient to message on our Whats app group. The group is very vibrant and lively with so much of positivity and knowledge emnating .
No one can deny this. Many of our members share their personal experiences as well and some are willing to go that extra mile to post links to their journal articles too. Hats off to you guys!!
We are extremely proud of these Achievers. However, an earnest and humble request again… please spare some of your valuable time at least once a week and post the same on the web site too – Yes, it is extra work but it won’t go a waste or get lost on the wall. We can archive and retrieve the same at our convenience. In the long run we all stand to benefit and most important – LEARN FROM EACH OTHER. I want our web site to become really dynamic and sought after…. The best site for Orbit and Oculoplastics in the world … And with people like you at the helm – Why Not ????
