Access Media Acquires RefractiveSource.com; Brian Chou, OD, FAAO Joins Editorial Board
La Jolla, Calif., June 17, 2008 Access Media Group, publisher of AllAboutVision.com, has completed the acquisition of RefractiveSource.com, a website providing information on refractive eye surgery. Brian Chou, OD, founder of RefractiveSource.com, has joined AllAboutVision.com's Editorial Advisory Board, and will be involved in reviewing articles and developing new content.
Launched in 2000, RefractiveSource.com resulted from Dr. Chou's first-hand experience with laser vision correction patients during his fellowship training in refractive surgery management at the Jules Stein Eye Institute, UCLA School of Medicine.
Dr. Chou is a partner in a private optometric practice in San Diego. He is also a clinical investigator and consultant to the vision correction industry, and serves as an expert witness for the California Board of Optometry.
"Dr. Chou's well-rounded experience with both surgical and non-surgical vision correction options in diverse patient care settings will be an asset to our editorial development," said Marilyn Haddrill, AllAboutVision.com editor. "We're happy to have him join our team."
"I'm pleased to give RefractiveSource.com's visitors access to the current, impartial content of AllAboutVision.com, the leading eye care website for consumers," said Dr. Chou.
Online since January 2000, AllAboutVision.com is a one-stop, independent resource providing millions of consumers with trustworthy, up-to-date, easy-to-understand information on eye health and vision correction options.
AllAboutVision.com is published by Access Media Group LLC, an online healthcare publisher with a specialty in vision and eye health.
