• About the American Academy of Ophthalmology Foundation

  • For more than 30 years, the American Academy of Ophthalmology Foundation has been dedicated to the prevention of global blindness through education and service.

    Foundation funding allows Academy programs to improve continuing education, build on beneficial service programs and promote better ways to provide patient care. Your support gives ophthalmologists in every country the educational resources to assist them in providing the gift of sight.

    Generous support from our donors has enabled the Academy to build on its globally respected legacy of upholding the highest standards in clinical education and patient care. Learn more about how the Foundation helps to protect sight and empower lives in our 2015-2016 annual report.
