Dr Shroff told that the incidence of diabetic retinopathy and complications due to it are increasing in India. Dr. Dogra said that the practice of administration of Oxygen soon after birth to prematurely born babies is doing harm to premature retina of such babies. This oxygenation leads to a disease called, “Retinopathy of Prematurity” which may cause permanent blindness of the baby if not detected and treated early. Therefore paediatricians & ophthalmologists should work in unison in such a situation.

Many eye surgeons from Haryana & Punjab came in the CME and enjoyed scientific session. Dr. Sushil Kumar, Dr. Parveen Arora, Dr. M.R. Bansal. Dr. G.K. Aggarwal.

Mr Parveen Bagla, president Baba Bihari Netralaya, presented a memento to Dr K.V. Singh.

Inputs from SirsaNews :
Delays in legislation slow the progress of continuing medical education in India
Indian medical associations say their doctors desperately need continuing medical education (CME) to keep them up to date with the latest drugs, equipment and medical practices but legislation to make this a requirement has made little progress.

The Medical Council of India had campaigned for CME to be made compulsory, as it is in the UK and some US states, for the country’s more than 600, 000 registered doctors. So that medical practice is standardized across the country while making sure it is up to date with the latest developments.

Despite the lack of legal incentive for doctors to attend regular refresher courses, CME has been catching on in India over the past few years due to the efforts of regional medical associations.

This effort of organizing CME in SIRSA, a small remote city of Haryana is commendable, as often-local doctors are unable to attend CME seminars that are held in far away bigger cities due to paucity of time or various reasons.
