The subject matter of the Oration will be the choice of the Orator and may be clinical research, preventive ophthalmology, education or new innovations as long as it contributes to the advancement of ophthalmology. The selection of the Orator will be made by the committee of the Ophthalmology Society from nominations received.

The award will be in the form of:

  • A medal
  • A plaque with the appropriate inscription
  • A certificate
