Wisconsin Sen. Cory Tomczyk (R-Mosinee) recently visited the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin in Wausau, WI, as part of the WAO Capitol Connection program. The program is aimed at connecting WAO physician members with their local state legislators to show them firsthand the importance of ophthalmology and medical eye care for Wisconsin patients.

“The Eye Clinic of Wisconsin provides exceptional eye care to the communities we serve. We are dedicated to quality patient care, both today and in the future,” said Eye Clinic of Wisconsin ophthalmologist, Dr. Deepak Sambhara, MD. “We were excited to provide Sen. Tomczyk with a tour of our Wausau location and show him the exceptional care provided by our physicians and staff.”

Tomczyk, who was first elected to the Wisconsin Senate in 2022, represents the 29th Senate District, which stretches from Marathon County northwest into Sawyer County and includes the Cities of Mosinee and Wausau. He currently serves as Chairman of the Senate Transportation and Local Government Committee.

“It was great to see the work of the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin firsthand,” said Sen. Tomczyk. “Their decades long effort to provide vision care in northern and central Wisconsin is vital to the residents of the 29th Senate District.”

For 60 years, the Eye Clinic of Wisconsin has provided vision care for residents throughout northern and central Wisconsin. They believe clear vision requires comprehensive, experienced care, offering full-service eye care for the patients they serve. 

In the Academy’s ongoing effort to raise the profile of ophthalmology and our organization in the State Capitol, the WAO Capitol Connection program was created to encourage WAO members to invite their local legislators to visit their clinics and facilities. To date, numerous WAO members across the state have held successful legislative tours. Hosting a legislator at your site is easy, enjoyable, and can make a significant advocacy impact, so we would encourage all WAO members to participate in this highly effective advocacy program.

If you would like to host a legislative tour at your site, please contact the WAO office at We will work with you and your legislators to coordinate the meetings and will provide participating members with full support, including legislator bios, advocacy tips, issue briefings, and supporting documents.
