The "Be Thou My Vision" Challenge was introduced at the 40th annual COS meeting in Portland.

We are encouraging any ophthalmologist to boldly show your patients that Christ is present at each surgery by displaying the "Be Thou My Vision" painting in a prominent place in your office or ASC.  This impressive painting is a 30x40" painting ready for framing and is a Canvas Giclée which appears almost to be an original.  

The first get together for a EurAfrican COS subchapter was held at the 40th annual meeting in Portland in August 2016.  There was high interest in beginning a subchapter of Christian ophthalmologists who live and work in Europe and Africa.  The group is formed initially with the purposes of spiritual support, encouragement and connection for ophthalmologists who are practicing in Europe or Africa or who have a strong interest in these areas.  Please feel free to sign up if you fit this category.  The group is not public and admission to the group initially is reviewed.
