About Ron / Business

I’ve been in eye care publishing for 40+ years.  For the last 20 years I’ve been 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. The website serves more than one million visitors per week.

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 that 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.

I currently serve on the U.S. Advisory Board of Optometry Giving Sight.
