We have been practicing eye care for more than 40 years. OCB was founded in Boston by three ophthalmologists in 1969 with the goal of providing specialty eye care of the highest quality. We now have 35 fellowship trained ophthalmologists, each with depth in experience within their respective subspecialty, and 17 optometrists caring for patients from nine practice locations to provide community based eye care.

Many are actively involved leaders in research advancing medical and surgical care of a wide range of eye conditions.
