How to Help

The Foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology is funded through charitable contributions from member ophthalmologists, corporations and organizations. Your tax-deductible gift will support our mission to prevent blindness worldwide.

Donor contributions enable the Academy to forge new paths in education and health policy research, and to provide ophthalmologists worldwide with the latest knowledge to give patients the gift of sight. You can help ensure that the programs vital to these efforts continue to thrive.
