About Ron / Business

I’ve been in eye care publishing for 41+ years.  From 1997-2018, I was a partner in Access Media Group.  We founded AllAboutVision.com, which since January 2000 has been providing consumers with trustworthy information on eye health and vision correction.

In 1997, I co-founded Contact Lenses Today, the first email newsletter for eye care professionals, in partnership with Dr. Joe Barr and  Contact Lens Spectrum.

From 1985-1992, I was publisher of Contact Lens Spectrum and a partner in Viscom Publications, which also published Eyecare Business.  We sold those publications in 1994; they are now part of PentaVision.

Prior to that, I worked for Advisory Enterprises, which at the time published Optometric Management, Ophthalmology Management, Optical Management, Eye Talk and Contact Lens Forum magazines. The company also co-owned OptiFair, the predecessor to Vision Expo.

In July 2018, I retired as publisher of AllAboutVision.com. I currently serve on the U.S. Advisory Board of Optometry Giving Sight and assist the Contact Lens Manufacturers Association with various online educational efforts.
