The Museum of Vision traces the history of ophthalmology through its collection of over 38,000 artifacts, rare books and archives. The collection, dating from the third century B.C. to the present, includes the history of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, personal papers of physicians and related professionals, oral histories, surgical instruments, spectacles, coins, stamps, rare books, photographs and film.
The Museum of Vision is always interested in expanding its collection. It is the museum's policy to place all offered gifts before an acquisition committee for a formal vote. Please contact museum staff with details about your offer of donation, including a description and photos, if possible.
