OCLI Vision , an internationally recognized, multi-specialty ophthalmology group in four states, has announced a non-exclusive affiliation agreement with a network of New York-based optometry practices supported by the LION Eye Group management services organization, according to a press release issued by OCLI Vision.
The parties have agreed to work together through a clinical affiliation to pursue increased breadth and consistency of quality care, ranging from optical to surgical. This includes creating efficiencies in delivering care and increasing coordination of care to prevent illness, promote health and safely improve vision and quality of life.
Dr. Eric Donnenfeld, past president of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, noted: “Our goal is bringing together the very best doctors from the fields of optometry and ophthalmology to raise the level of clinical care for every patient who enters our practices.”

“There are significant patient service benefits from our years’ long informal affiliation with OCLI doctors and surgeons,” said Dr. Lori Landrio, founding member, president and board chair of the LION Eye Group. “This effort outlines more formally what coordinated care can do to further our commitment to vision, and to accomplish the goal of preserving the sanctity of medical optometry while providing the most effective technology, education and treatment options for our patients. This was something we announced was part of our strategy and development in late October 2020 and we couldn’t be happier that OCLI has joined in!”
