Do you have an inspiring story about a life-saving diagnosis, overcoming a disease, generational care or a positive experience during a recent visit? Your story could be the inspiration someone else needs to schedule a potentially lifesaving, in-person eye exam. We’d love to hear it and share it with the world.

We deserve the human connection and medical expertise that AOA doctors of optometry deliver. In many cases, this human connection can make a life-changing difference in a patient’s overall health and well-being. Does this sound like you? Here’s how you can share:
