The Swiss Academy of Ophthalmology is a national-level Foundation committed to quality assurance, research and advanced training in functional ophthalmology.
It acts in a supportive capacity and, primarily, as an initiator of projects and new ideas, and it endeavours to supplement conventional training, teaching and research with new resources and momentum.
The Foundation ensures that high standards of quality are maintained in ophthalmological practice, and it works towards integrating all innovative ideas and projects in the existing structures. It is neutral at sectarian, professional and associative levels and from a health policy perspective, and is completely independent, being free from regulatory, institutional and industrial affiliation.
