Donate to the MN Optometry PAC now!

Please consider donating to the Minnesota Optometry PAC, so we can make a difference!

Because relationships matter! Every year Minnesota's elected officials consider and pass countless pieces of legislation that directly and indirectly affect the profession of optometry in Minnesota and your ability to provide care for your patients.

Because elections matter! As a group, you can have impact by helping to elect primary eye care-friendly candidates at the state level. A PAC allows a community of like-minded individuals to amplify their voice- individually, doctors may not have the time and resources to affect candidate elections.

Anyone who cares about the optometric profession can give to Optometry PAC, and there is no maximum to what you can contribute. However, contributions are not tax deductible and corporate contributions are not allowed.

Please Note: You must use a personal credit card to make a donation.


The Vaccination Process Has Begun for Optometry

We are pleased to state that some of our Optometrists are getting their vaccines and the process is moving forward.  Shown below are two of our members that received their first vaccination.  We do know there are others in the state that have received theirs that are affiliated with hospital systems and also heard this week a few independent Optometrists that are beginning to receive theirs.  The process is moving forward and we continue to work in any way we can with the County Public Health Departments to assist in any way we can.
