There are so many things we can do on our screens; getting a comprehensive eye exam isn’t one of them. Learn why actor, singer, songwriter, producer and gamer Jordan Fisher is partnering with AOA for the Eye Deserve More campaign.
Launched in Fall 2022, the mission of the CIP is to fuel a passion for and create a foundational knowledge base to excel in the management of today’s independent practice of contemporary optometry.
Week in Focus is a weekly roundup of the profession and AOA news delivered to all AOA members including students, doctors and optometric staff each Thursday. If you are not receiving Week in Focus, visit your MyAOA and select "Email Preference Center" to make sure you are opted in. For additional help, please reach out to AOA Member Services.
