As a non-profit association and unified voice, we serve the community of corporate-affiliated optometrists. AACO is dedicated to furthering the public and inter-professional image of corporate Optometry. We represent Optometrists working in all corporate brands. 


Providing technical and professional education for corporate affiliated practitioners, so they may provide the highest quality care to their patients.

AACO Core Values - Unify.Inspire.Educate.Empower.


Founded by an organizing committee of three Walmart Advisory Board Optometrists and a Director of Professional Services, Energeyes was created as a non-profit trade association for all ODs practicing in a corporate retail setting. The first association organization committee meeting was held in July of 2013. 


The association is an inclusive community of corporate-affiliated optometrists with a mission-based on empowering members by giving them knowledge and resources to provide optimal patient care. By providing mode-specific CE for corporate affiliated optometrists, we enhance the quality of eye care professional education.

Serving as a voice that advances both the public and inter-professional image of the corporate optometrists and a resource for Optometry practice management, providing networking and buying advantages, and by supporting local marketing efforts, we provide leadership opportunities to help members grow both as a practitioner and as a person.

The association is a dynamic community of Corporate Affiliated Optometrists serving as a forum for the 13,000+ ODs practicing in this unique setting.
