In response to recent devastation caused by hurricanes and earthquakes, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology have established an Emergency Relief Fund. Our goal is to help those in affected areas to get the services and help they need. We will put your tax-deductible donations to good use – 100 percent of the funds raised will go to hurricane relief.
