The Museum of Vision is the history and archives department of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, an association of eye physicians founded in 1896. We are located inside the national headquarters of the Academy in San Francisco, California. There, we utilize the 38,000 objects in the American Academy of Ophthalmology Foundation historical collection to celebrate the unique contributions of ophthalmology to science and health. We serve as an educational resource for Academy members, medical historians, researchers and the public.
