EyeDock is the leading online clinical reference for optometry. Established in 2002 by Todd Zarwell, OD, FAAO, the website began as a quirky hobby to help fellow practitioners in their day-to-day patient care. EyeDock was the first website to feature a comprehensive database of contact lens parameters. Brian Chou, OD, FAAO, joined the venture during the summer of 2003 as a co-developer. Additional features, including clinical calculators and a topical ophthalmic medicine database, were brought online. More recently GP lenses and a refracting tutorial and simulator were added to the Web site. Visitation to EyeDock.com has grown quickly through positive word-of-mouth and press coverage in several trade publications, with a loyal following.
Today, EyeDock.com has an active subscriber base of nearly 3,000 eye care professionals. The website is poised for continued growth with strategic industry alliances and an unbeatable value-proposition for eye care professionals. In particular, a subscription to EyeDock.com is less expensive than the leading printed contact lens reference, yet is updated more frequently, and offers more features like advanced search functions and a companion application for the iPhone.
Thank you for your interest in EyeDock.com!
