Education with a vision—that’s what Optometry’s Meeting® offers with a modernized curriculum of progressive CE and professional development.
In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week, the AOA thanks optometric educators for the impact they make on students and the profession and for preparing the doctors of tomorrow.

Given the doors that were once closed and are now open to women and people of color in society, it might be expected that the faces of optometry would reflect the changing demographics of the nation. And with the nation’s reckoning over social injustice in 2020 stirring anew concerns over diversity and inclusiveness, the profession is asking whether optometry reflects the nation’s changing demographics—and why should that matter?
After two years apart, Optometry’s Meeting welcomes back friends and colleagues June 24-26 with a new location and revamped experience that puts attendees’ health and safety first.
Women may outnumber men in optometry schools today, but it wasn’t always that way. Learn more about female doctors of optometry who made a difference, in honor of Women’s History Month.
