to establish the practice of optometry according to the eye health needs of the Asian region with due respect to the socio-economic, cultural aspects and identity of its people;
to promote the science and profession of optometry across the Asian region;
to adopt such endeavour that would lead to the establishment of formal optometry programs in the target countries/territories;
to promote the recognition and advancement of optometry as a profession through legislation, regulation and education;
to reduce the global threat of vision impairment and avoidable blindness through education and eye health advocacies;
to undertake projects and activities that would raise the standard of eye and vision care across the region.
