About Us

For over two decades, Pioneer International has been an industry leader in the distribution of ophthalmic products to ophthalmology residents as well as optometry students.

Pioneer began its journey in 1999 when President and CEO, Valerie Nicola combined the manufacturer contacts, customer confidence, and vast amounts of motivation. Today, Pioneer is still a privately held, woman-owned, and run company. There is a reason why Pioneer has over 90% of the student and resident market share - actually, there's more than one!
