and Help Prevent Blindness

Every 5 seconds one person in the world becomes blind unnecessarily!

The Pan-American has the unique ability to reach across countries and cultures in an incredible mosaic of collaboration to deliver programs that prevent blindness and to offer lifelong education and cultural exchange among ophthalmologists.

For over 70 years, the Pan-American has been instrumental in helping to restore sight in countless numbers of people and and serves as a leader in elevating the standards of the practice of ophthalmology and quality of eye care thoughout the Western Hemisphere.

If you share our commitment to preventing blindness, you can enter your tax-deductible* gift to the Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation (PAOF) below. If you prefer, you can call the PAAO/PAOF office at (817) 275-7553 to donate by phone.

Contribute $1,000 or more and become a member of the Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation’s Circle of Vision. The Circle of Vision was established to acknowledge individual members, industry partners, and foundations who give an annual leadership gift to help expand the Pan-American’s education and prevention of blindness programs.
