The Society of Military Ophthalmologists (SMO) is composed of Active Duty and Reserve ophthalmologists from the Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as ophthalmologists who have previously served.
Our goal is to unify and promote military ophthalmology. We bring military ophthalmologists together to further our professional contact and advance the science and art of military medical and surgical eye care.
