Listerv Guidelines

Corporate members must adhere to the following guidelines when participating in AAOE listservs:

  • Your membership in AAOE listervs (E-Talk, E-Retina, E-Code) is non transferable. Only the person(s) whose name(s) appear on our consultant directory may participate.
  • Your header and footer for each listserv comment must state: “consultant comment”.
  • You may not solicit your services in e-mail replies or postings.
  • You may not invite readers to contact your firm for further information.
  • If a reader voluntarily contacts your firm, you may engage in a professional relationship only after you convey – and they agree – your services are separate and apart from AAOE’s general listserv activities.


The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives (AAOE) do not endorse the consultants listed in this directory and do not review, approve or endorse the consultants' advice or opinions. Consultants who list a membership in a professional association are obliged to follow the ethical codes of their association. The AAO and AAOE disclaim all liability.
