The Ohio Eye Care Coalition (OECC) was founded in March 1997 by Prevent Blindness, Ohio Affiliate, 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.
- Assess vision conservation needs in Ohio and develop plans of action to address these needs.
- 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.
- Cooperate on providing community service programs geared to eye care and eye safety to benefit the general public.
