The Montana Academy of Ophthalmology (MAO) is the organizational and representative body of the medical eye physicians/surgeons in the State of Montana.  Ophthalmologists (Eye MDs) are medical doctors with additional specialized training in all aspects of eye care; medical, surgical, and optical.  As medical doctors, Eye MDs and their practices are also available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for urgent or emergent care. 

An Eye MD has completed:
  • 4 years of college
  • 4 years of medical school
  • 1 year of general medical or surgical internship
  • 3 years (minimum) of tertiary hospital based residency in the
    diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases.

The primary goals of the MAO are to:

  • Promote and advance the science and art of medicine pertaining to
    the eye.
  • Encourage and foster the relationships of this specialty to other branches of medicine.
  • Monitor the related social, economic, and political factors in the state so as to help assure access to and quality of eye care for the citizens of Montana.

The MAO and its members are committed to these goals.  To this end, an office in Helena and Executive Director are available for assistance as are individual MAO members.
