Posted on December 20, 2016
Topic: ICO Programs and Initiatives

Patient safety is a high priority for the World Health Organization and all of us, and we ask that you support, share, and promote the ICO’s Global Call for Action to Eliminate Surgical Eye Errors.

The document recommends adherence to standard protocols and procedures by integration of safety promotion systems that involve the entire surgical team, and that include preoperative verification, site marking, and a surgical pause as essential parts of a standard checklist.

Together, we can raise awareness of patient safety and have a strong and positive impact on eye health internationally.
