Medical Executive Board

The Medical Executive Board is unique in the vision care industry. The doctors on the Medical Executive Board provide guidance to Senior Management and the EyeCare Partners Corporate Board and also serve as advocates in governmental bodies and professional societies. The Medical Executive Board establishes best practices to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of medical care. They also define and support the careers of ODs, MDs, and staff at our partner practices and empower internal leadership, productivity, ongoing education, efficiency, and research.
