The California Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (CAEPS) is the only statewide organization representing California ophthalmologists and their patients. CAEPS' activities include public education about important eye health care concerns, legislative advocacy, interaction with third party payers about reimbursement and coverage issues, and continuing medical education for ophthalmologists and their staffs.
As you visit the CAEPS web site, we invite you to learn more about the special training and expertise of an ophthalmologist in the delivery of medical and surgical eye care. The comprehensive ophthalmologist is truly the most highly trained provider of routine eye examinations and all refractive services, including eyeglasses and contact lenses and corrective corneal surgery, as well as medical or surgical care for eye disease. Vision is precious to all of us, and California's ophthalmologists are dedicated to providing the best possible care for this most valuable sense.
We are privileged to live at a time when most potentially blinding eye disease can be controlled with proper and prompt diagnosis and treatment. CAEPS is dedicated to bringing these benefits to the citizens of California.
