 About the Society

Andhra Pradesh Ophthalmic Society (APOS) was formed in 1976 with a humble beginning under the able leadership of Dr. P. Siva Reddy. The society which was started from an idea of 5 ophthalmologists in 1976 grew to over 1300 members in 2014.

Due to the geographical division of Andhra Pradesh, the erstwhile APOS was divided into a new Andhra Pradesh Ophthalmic Society (APOS) and Telangana Ophthalmological Society (TOS). The new APOS has been registered under the Andhra Pradesh Societies Registration Act 2001 bearing registration number 192 of 2014 , headquartered in Vijayawada

Our mission is to lead eye care by setting and improving standards, providing lifelong education, promoting research and innovation.
