The American Academy of Optometry promotes the art and science of vision care through lifelong learning. The Academy sponsors educational programs, disseminates up-to-date information, initiates and supports research programs, creates opportunities for sharing research results, encourages reporting of exceptional and instructive conditions and promotes the highest ethical and professional standards of practice. The Academy also disseminates knowledge through Optometry & Vision Science, the official journal of the Academy.
Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry include optometrists in professional practice, scientists, educators, librarians, administrators, and editors who have accredited themselves to optometry by their service.
Application fees are waived for Candidacy for Fellowship applications submitted at our booth in the Exhibit Hall. That’s a savings of $60! Membership is also available to students, full time graduate students in the vision sciences and residents.
