The Nebraska Academy of Eye Physicians PAC fund gives Nebraska ophthalmologists a voice at the State Capitol in Lincoln. The fund helps our organization establish relationships with Nebraska Senators and support those Senators that are allies of ophthalmology and medicine. NAEPS PAC is a non-partisan political action committee which gives to both Democrats and Republicans in our non-partisan legislature.
AAO OPHTHPAC® Fund
A strong profession requires a strong political action committee. The Academy’s OPHTHPAC® fund gives ophthalmology a voice on Capitol Hill that helps preserve our profession’s ability to provide quality care. Year after year, investments by ophthalmologists like you have given our profession the necessary relationships to drive change in the federal government.
OPHTHPAC gives us the resources needed to establish and sustain important relationships in Congress. When a legislative fight emerges, OPHTHPAC helps ensure we have allies on our side in Washington, D.C.
OPHTHPAC is a non-partisan political action committee. OPHTHPAC contributes to both Democrats and Republicans because legislation cannot pass without support from both political parties. Invest in OPHTHPAC to build and sustain necessary relationships in Congress and across the federal space.
AAO Surgical Scope Fund
Through the Surgical Scope Fund, the Academy works with state ophthalmological and medical societies to ensure patient safety and surgical standards.
We uphold this commitment by opposing state-level efforts to grant medical and surgical privileges, legislatively or through regulations, to non-physician health care practitioners. Statistics show that safety risks to patients are far too great to grant certain surgical authorities to health care practitioners who lack adequate training and expertise as a primary surgeon. Only physicians have obtained the appropriate levels of medical education and clinical training to safely perform delicate eye surgery.
