Energeyes: The American Association of Corporate Affiliated Optometrists (AACO)

Founded by an organizing committee of three Walmart Advisory Board Optometrists and a Director of Professional Services, Energeyes was created as a non-profit trade association for all ODs practicing in a corporate retail setting. The first association organization committee meeting was held in July of 2013. 


The association is an inclusive community of corporate-affiliated optometrists with a mission based on empowering members by giving them knowledge and resources to provide optimal patient care. By providing mode-specific CE for corporate affiliated optometrists, we enhance the quality of eye care professional education.

Serving as a voice that advances both the public and inter-professional image of the corporate optometrists and a resource for Optometry practice management, providing networking and buying advantages, and by supporting local marketing efforts, we provide leadership opportunities to help members grow both as a practitioner and as a person.

The association is a dynamic community of Corporate Affiliated Optometrists serving as a forum for the 13,000+ ODs practicing in this unique setting.
