Doctors, optometry students and paraoptometrics are invited to attend the virtual AOA Emergency Children’s Vision Summit on March 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Over two panels, experts on children’s eye health and vision care will assess and chart a course forward.
The single-largest annual advocacy event and centerpiece of optometry’s federal advocacy efforts, Virtual AOA on Capitol Hill, returns to its digital format, May 23-25, with new priorities that could address the immediate needs of optometry practices nationwide.
While the enforcement of new amendments to the Rule are delayed, doctors must continue to adhere to the long standing Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (FCLCA) requirement to provide patients with a copy of their contact lens prescription following completion of the contact lens fitting.
