Letter from the President

David E. I. Pyott, President

Dear ICOFoundation Supporters,

The International Council of Ophthlamology (ICO) is committed to improving eye-care programs on a worldwide basis,  primarily by improving education through a  “teaching the teachers” learning model. 

Our work  is especially important in developing countries where there are an inadequate number of skilled eye care professionals.

In 2013, the ICO and ICOFoundation experienced a great personal and professional loss with the passing of ICOFoundation President, Stephen J. Ryan, MD.  Steve’s dynamic leadership raised funds to support ICO programs, including more than $1.2 million committed to Teaching the Teachers for 2012-2014.

I am committed to supporting the important work of the ICO and I believe we will continue to make an impact in international eye care.  Our supporters have proven that they are committed to our programs as well.  Please consider joining them by making a financial contribution today: www.icofoundation.org/contribute/make-a-donation.html

With warm regards,

David E. I. Pyott, MDhc
