Optometrists.org - Since 1996
About Us
Optometrists Network was founded by Rachel Cooper. Optometrists Network is a network of interconnected patient education and optometric web sites which educate the public about visual health and unique aspects of optometric care. Our public health mission is supported by our Members who are licensed Doctors of Optometry.

All of our information services, including referrals and patient education, are available for free to the public -- no registration required. And, thanks to our Members, Optometrists Network has been advertising-free and without commercial affiliations since its inception.

Optometrists Network began in 1996 when its flagship web site vision3d.com was published on the Web. One month after its launch, vision3d.com won the Internet Medical Site of the Week Award and was receiving over 10,000 visitors a month. Visitor traffic has continued to grow ever since.

In late 1997, our Find an Eye Doctor and Optometrist directory was launched and the public began receiving free immediate referrals to optometrists over the Internet. Prior to 1997, free referrals were sent out one-at-a-time via hand-typed email messages!

Optometrists Network aims to:

To fulfill our public health mission, we publish advertising-free educational content via the internet. And every year we update and/or add patient education links and web pages to incorporate new scientific research and address the growing information needs of patients and parents served by optometric care.

Optometrists Network would like to take this opportunity to thank its many generous contributors' of royalty-free and advertising-free patient education content and links, such as:

  2. Non-profit public health organizations and joint ventures, such as AOA's InfantSEE: Free Well Baby Eye Exams for Infants, Learning Disabilities Worldwide, New England Eye Commonwealth, Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group, NIH, Vision First Foundation, Kids Eyes Count Campaign, etc.;

  3.
