Welcome to the COS

125 Years and Counting!


Since it was established in 1893 -- more than 125 years ago -- the Chicago Ophthalmological Society has been dedicated to advancing educational opportunities for ophthalmologists in the Chicagoland area.  Today, with nearly 300 members in private practice and academia, the COS is one of the oldest and most successful local eye societies nationally.  Its members have included some of the most prominent ophthalmologists in the country.

The Mission of the Chicago Ophthalmological Society is:
To enhance the vision and health of the greater Chicago community by providing education, advocacy and a forum for discussion of clinical care and eye research among ophthalmologists in practice or training.
