The Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) is a supranational organization that welcomes participation from national, territorial and subspecialty-based ophthalmic societies in the Asia-Pacific region. Being the major driving force of ophthalmic development in the Asia-Pacific region, the APAO seeks to promote the science and art of ophthalmology in the Asia-Pacific region, eliminate preventable blindness through teaching, research and service, foster cooperation between various ophthalmological societies in different countries and encourage collaboration with other international and regional ophthalmological organizations. Accordingly, the APAO organizes an annual congress, co-organizes scientific meetings and conferences, publishes the Asia-Pacific Journal of Ophthalmology, recognizes ophthalmologists' achievements in research, education and blindness prevention, offers training and learning opportunities to young ophthalmologists, and provides an online platform on which ophthalmologists from different parts of the world can interact and consult with one another.
