Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology

Associate Secretary, Portuguese Language Region

The mission of the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology is the prevention of blindness through lifelong education and cultural exchange among ophthalmologists in the Western Hemisphere. This Portal will provide a virtual meeting place for professionals from all over the world to gather as a Pan-American Community and focus on ways to standardize and improve ophthalmic knowledge and skills for the improvement of patient care. The Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology (PAAO) was founded in 1939 by Moacyr E. Alvaro MD (Brazil), Conrad Berens MD (USA), and Harry S. Gradle MD (USA). The Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation (PAOF) was founded in 1959 to support the PAAO and its educational programs. The Pan-American strives to provide continuing education for ophthalmologists, prevention of blindness programs, and cultural exchange.
