For Pediatric Ophthalmologist


L. Procell

CEF/AAPOS’s mission and our unwavering focus today are the same as in 1970: to be a leading public voice promoting early detection and treatment of eye conditions in children through the trustworthy authority of AAPOS, and to foster the education and research of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus experts so that children can get the best care possible – to eliminate preventable blindness in children.

Since 1970, CEF/AAPOS has raised over $3 million in funding and implemented programs that have supported pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus-expert training, education and research, and provided public education to promote early detection and expert care of vision-threatening eye diseases.

Children’s Eye Foundation of AAPOS was founded by pediatric ophthalmologists (the same founding fathers that created AAPOS). CEF/AAPOS was purposefully created for the profession of pediatric ophthalmology to improve eye care in children. “We want to get more children screened and into the care of a pediatric ophthalmologist 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/AAPOS, Past President of AAPOS


The Children’s Eye Foundation (CEF) and AAPOS would like to invite applications for the CEF/AAPOS Research Grant

The Children’s Eye Foundation of AAPOS awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. The first CEF/AAPOS Research grant was awarded in 1975, and since then CEF/AAPOS has funded over $1 million of research related to children’s eyesight. Click here to see a list of projects funded. Research adds to the scientific groundwork that makes it possible to detect, correct, and give treatment that can eliminate preventable vision loss from serious childhood eye conditions.

The 2018 grant cycle is now closed. 2018 recipients will be announced in November 2018. The 2019 grant window will open in May 2019.
