The American Association of Doctors of Optometry (AADO) is a recently formed, independent organization committed to defending Vision Care Plan Providers from unfair and illegal business practices of leading vision care and health plans.

AADO’s Mission is “to improve the quality of eye care in America by removing barriers to the delivery of optometric care and restoring competition among eye care providers.” The AADO has recently retained the services of anti-trust attorney Mr. David A. Balto, in part to address the many new rules imposed by various third-party plans on their contracted providers which have led to the erosion of natural competition of eye care providers in the marketplace.

Mr. Balto will investigate whether these third-party practices are anti-competitive or violate the law, including Federal anti-trust law. Go to www.theaado.org for more details and membership information.
