The caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral group of Members of Congress dedicated to strengthening and stimulating a national dialogue on the importance of vision health. The CVC seeks to achieve its goals through Congressional briefings, Dear Colleague letters, and press conferences. The CVC is co-chaired by Representatives Gene Green (D-TX), David Price (D-NC), Phil Gingrey (R-GA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL).
