Ophthalmology Society Development


Ophthalmology Societies

The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) represents the worlds ophthalmologists through official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO). A primary commitment of the ICO is to work with the world’s ophthalmology societies and other stakeholders to enhance ophthalmic education and improve access to the highest quality people-centred eye care to preserve and restore vision for the people of the world. The ICO brings ophthalmologists and their teams together to learn, share, inspire and engage in excellence and innovation. We aim to strengthen eye care capacity in low- and middle-income settings to address inequities and pressing public eye health needs to secure eye health for all.
