How does AllAboutVision.com make money? AllAboutVision.com sells advertising and sponsorships on the site to companies that provide eye care products and services. We don't sell products, so our content isn't biased toward anything we're trying to sell you.

But isn't AllAboutVision.com's content biased toward its advertisers? We run advertising for many different types of products and services. From a business perspective, that helps keep us impartial. For example, no laser vision correction companies would advertise with us if our content was unfairly biased toward contact lenses, and vice versa. Much more importantly, since AllAboutVision.com is an online publication, the professional ethics of our team of journalists and our doctor reviewers set the standard for our editorial quality.

How do I know which content on your website is advertising, and which is not? Our website includes advertising banners, advertorials and sponsored sections. Advertisements and advertorials are labeled with the word "Advertisement." Sponsored sections are labeled with the phrase "Sponsored Section."
