Make a professional impression as a student or young doctor of optometry

Whether you're searching for your first practice opportunity or marketing yourself to the community where you'll be practicing, there’s one thing you need aside from your new diploma—business cards. Business cards are an essential tool for networking and generating referrals—especially as a student or young doctor of optometry.

All current AOA/AOSA student members enrolled in an accredited school or college of optometry in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada are eligible.

Build your network with business cards recognizing your AOA membership

You may order your free set of AOA-imprinted business cards today. Be sure to have your AOSA/AOA username and password handy. A required survey will then appear. One note, after you’ve completed the survey, the $25 fee will be waived so you may order your cards for free.

Two complimentary sets of 250 cards are available per student/young doctor of optometry. If you have secured a position or place of employment, order your cards to include your practice address and contact information. Your personalized cards will be shipped directly to you at the address indicated on your order form.
