Volunteer Opportunities

The success of the Academy depends, in part, on the valuable service contributions and volunteer efforts of its members. There are several ways to contribute your time to the Academy:

Committees – Under the direction of the secretariats, committees develop and implement specific programs that address the long-range objectives of the Academy. The Academy has over one hundred active committees that are managed by Academy volunteers.

Peer Reviewer for Ophthalmology – If you would like to review and evaluate manuscripts for publication, visit and click on the "register" button at the top of the page. Complete all contact information as well as "personal classifications" under the section "Areas of interest and expertise." Additional information available in the Guide for Ophthalmology Reviewers (PDF 49 KB).

EyeCare America – Provides services to someone in need of quality eye care.

EyeCare Volunteer Registry – Assists in matching services and experience to low-income countries in need of eye care.
