We are the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control (AAOMC), a passionate community with a mission to evolve the modern practice. We teach doctors at Vision By Design how to bring specialty care to their practice, helping their patients manage myopia and improving the practitioner’s bottom line by building a loyal patient base who need a different kind of eye care provider.
