Protect Veterans Eyesight

Ophthalmologists are board certified medical doctors and surgeons who provide the highest quality of medical and surgical eye care for military veterans, and who are committed to maintaining the highest possible safety standards.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is considering policies that would reverse those surgical standards by subjecting our veterans to eye surgery performed by someone without proper medical education and surgical training.

That’s right. A person who did not go to medical school or complete a surgical residency training program could perform surgery using a blade or laser on the eyes of our brave veterans.

We cannot let this happen.

If you care about protecting the health and safety of those who sacrificed for our country, donate today so we can educate policymakers and the public about the dangers facing our veterans.

As ophthalmologists, we are dedicated to protecting sight and empowering lives. If the VA makes these changes, it will lower surgical eye standards and place veterans’ eyesight and quality of life at risk. They deserve better. They’ve earned it.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology serves as an advocate for patients and the public, leading ophthalmic education and advancing the profession of ophthalmology.
