The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) represents and serves professional associations of ophthalmologists throughout the world, with 159 national and sub-ophthalmology member associations.

Currently, the organization has 127 training points around the world, mainly in Germany, India, Japan and the United States, of which AIER Eye Hospital Group accounted for seven. The student selection process for ICO training is very tough, and the trainees are all excellent young ophthalmologists from all over the world.


As an international eye health group across Asia, Europe and the United States, AIER Eye Hospital Group has more than 300 professional eye hospitals around the world. An enormous database with more than 20 million of clinical cases is a gold mine for AIER to push through some important eye researches.


As a medical group integrated with production, education and research, AIER Eye Hospital Group has long been committed to promoting world-class ophthalmic technology and management concepts, and has cultivated and trained master's tutors, doctoral tutors, doctors, postdocs, and visiting scholars in Europe and America.
