Connect With Your Community of Independent Eye Care Professionals
PECAA’s legacy has always been, and continues to be, building a collaborative community of like-minded, independent eye care professionals committed to making their practices stronger… together.
Whether you’re attending one of our live local, regional, or national events or joining our online support community, our Members are eager to share their ideas and insights, discuss issues and concerns, and build a network of support amongst their peers.
When PECAA was founded, local Portland, OR area doctors would get together for happy hour and discuss opportunities for their practices. PECAA’s core principle of collaboration and camaraderie has continued today in the form of Peer-to-Peer dinners.
We invite you to join us for the next Peer-to-Peer dinner in your region to share ideas & best practices, discuss issues and concerns, and build your support community.

Understanding Your Role in Health Care Reform
While healthcare reform may seem overwhelming on a grand-scale, it actually provides eye care with numerous opportunities that allow providers to negotiate for higher reimbursements, become full participants in local integrated care delivery networks, and ultimately, it provides the tools and resources needed to deliver better patient care.
PECAA is pleased to be the primary organization in the eye care industry to help providers who want to move to outcome-driven care.
