The aim of this project is to act as a unified body to renew and build momentum that will foster open communication, transparent and rich knowledge exchange, and move forward as one voice in support of vision health and ageing within and across countries around the world.
AGA is a connecting agent. Bringing together various organizations, sectors, disciplines, and experts together for the common cause of improving the quality of life of older people, providing older people the opportunity to live their later years free of visual impairment or blindness through improved awareness, education, and access to timely examinations and treatments.
