The Ophthalmic Education Institute's goal is to bring unity to the ophthalmic community. Organized in 1964 as Metroptic Inc., the corporation was reorganized as a not-for-profit educational organization in 1994 to better meet the needs of the members.

OEI is dedicated to the concept of high quality eye care delivered by a united health care team, supported by quality optical and pharmaceutical supplies, laboratories, manufacturers and other who support their efforts.

The changing health care delivery scene places increasing demands upon the entire ophthalmic community. OEI's efforts are non-political and are directed towards unifying the components of the eye care delivery team. For more information visit
