We review optical photometric observations of several recently discovered millisecond pulsar binary systems. For each system, the observations allowed us to reveal for the first time the pulsar companion star, establish its nature and estimate the fundamental parameters of the systems. We discuss the results together with their implications for studies of neutron stars, and future optical observing campaigns aimed at these and other millisecond pulsar binary systems.
