The Pan-American Ophthalmological Foundation’s Circle of Vision was established to acknowledge those individual members, industry partners and foundations who give an annual leadership gift to the Foundation. Gifts to the Circle of Vision help the Pan-American to expand its education and prevention of blindness programs throughout the Americas and beyond.
In 2012, contributions to the Circle of Vision were instrumental in helping the PAAO remain a leader in providing sight-saving ophthalmic knowledge and skills to thousands of ophthalmologists who are working daily to improve the quality of eye care and prevent blindness. This year, we want not only to continue to offer these educational opportunities but to increase the number of educational scholarships and awards available.
Your gift to the Circle of Vision will not only serve to advance the Foundation’s mission but will also demonstrate the strength of your commitment to the Pan-American and underscore the leading role you are playing in helping to sustain the organization today and in the future.
Contributions: There are several different levels of membership but the minimum annual contribution to be a member of this prestigious leadership group is US$1,000. This membership contribution will be for the calendar year and must be paid by December 31.
