“We provide information so more children will get screened and (those with a problem) into the care of pediatric ophthalmologists so they can be treated when treatment is not only possible but has the greatest chance of being successful.”

– Dr. David Epley, President of CEF, Past President of AAPOS

CEF exists for the very purpose of providing educational information and resources for patients (and parents/families) about kids’ eye care and adult strabismus care. CEF also supports the research and education of pediatric ophthalmologists and strabismus experts so patients can get the best care possible from physicians with specialized training in the care of childhood eye conditions & adult strabismus. CEF’s Board and staff consist of a special blend of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus physicians and people devoted to “seeing to it” that children can have a life with good vision. CEF is the official Foundation of AAPOS. CEF’s mission is to eliminate preventable blindness in children.

Pediatric Ophthalmology and strabismus experts from AAPOS have developed, selected, and reviewed all of this content. AAPOS is the world’s largest physician organization dedicated to children’s eye care and adults with strabismus. The mission of AAPOS is to promote the highest quality medical and surgical eye care worldwide for children and for adults with strabismus.
