• Physicians choose ophthalmology because they love helping to protect sight and empower patients’ lives. But changes in the health care system increasingly threaten that joy.

    The American Academy of Ophthalmology wants to restore the satisfaction that brought so many of us to this specialty. To help improve ophthalmologist well-being, the Academy has a series of resources designed to help you cope with stress, protect and restore your own well-being and preserve the joy of protecting sight.
