Practice Management & Patient Care Guidance
The AOA is committed to supporting and serving members throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency. Below you can find information and resources that help optometry practices navigate the new practice management and care considerations dictated by the nation's pandemic response.
As AOA encourages federal recognition of optometry as COVID-19 vaccinators, doctors can access new COVID-19 vaccinator resources, information and guidance with an upcoming #AskAOA webinar.
U.S. health authorities spur next phase of COVID-19 vaccination rollout, dramatically expanding supply and administration sites, as optometry explores going from vaccinated to vaccinator.
The AOA and state associations are working to ensure doctors of optometry will be included among initial COVID-19 vaccinations to health care workers, preserving Americans’ access to eye care.
