Is AllAboutVision.com's content trustworthy? The site's content is written by a team of journalists who have extensive experience in the eye care field. In addition, articles are developed with the input of an Advisory Board of eye care practitioners. All health-related articles are written and/or reviewed by one or more eye care practitioners. We strive to ensure that the optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians who write and review our content don't have financial interests that will influence their coverage of a topic.

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."
