• About the OPHTHPAC® Fund

    A strong profession requires a strong political action committee. The Academy’s OPHTHPAC® fund gives ophthalmology a voice on Capitol Hill that helps preserve our profession’s ability to provide quality care. Year after year, investments by ophthalmologists like you have given our profession the necessary relationships to drive change in
the federal government. 

    OPHTHPAC gives us the resources needed to establish and sustain important relationships in Congress. When a legislative fight emerges, OPHTHPAC helps ensure we have allies on our side in Washington, D.C.

    OPHTHPAC is a non-partisan political action committee. OPHTHPAC contributes to both Democrats and Republicans because legislation cannot pass without support from both political parties. Invest in OPHTHPAC to build and sustain necessary relationships in Congress and across the federal space.
