Adult Vision Health Programs

Ohio Eye Care Coalition




The Ohio Eye Care Coalition (OECC) was founded in March 1997 by Prevent Blindness Ohio, the Ohio Ophthalmological Society, and the Ohio Optometric Association to provide a forum for discussion/action on vision care policies and programs geared to enhancing the eye health and safety status for all Ohioans. Advisory assistance is provided by The Ohio Department of Health.

OECC Goals:

  1. Assess vision conservation needs in Ohio and develop plans of action to address these needs.
  2. Develop joint public policy statements and/or legislation and take action at the Ohio Statehouse or at the administrative/executive levels of government to gain support for implementing new policies/rules aimed at enhancing the eye health and safety status for all Ohioans.
  3. Cooperate on providing community service programs geared to eye care and eye safety to benefit the general public.
