OWL was founded over 15 years ago as a 501c3 nonprofit entity. It remains the only organization in ophthalmology to unite every stakeholder: leading practice administrators, industry executives, consultants, media, PR, and physicians. It is, inarguably, the best network in ophthalmology.
OWL is a membership organization and typically organizes several physical events a year at major ophthalmic meetings, bringing in world-class speakers. We also have several local chapters around the US, as well as providing robust online programming live and ‘on-demand’ to our members.
OWL’s vision is to promote and develop diverse leadership to advance Ophthalmic Innovation and Patient Care.
OWL works across Ophthalmology. Our mission is to provide professional and personal development and create opportunities for collaboration.
