• Corporate and Institutional Support


    “Many of the greatest innovations in eye health have been made possible through the financial support of charitable organizations, thanks to generous people who give to improve the lives of others. OMIC is committed to giving back to our community. We have always been able to draw a direct line between our donations to the Academy and the development of useful tools, resources, and information to
    protect sight.”
