How do paraoptometrics become AOA Associate Members?

All paraoptometrics/optometric staff of AOA member ODs may become AOA associate members and have access to all current Paraoptometric Resource Center (PRC) member benefits and services, at no membership cost to the paraoptometric and no added membership cost to the AOA-member optometrist. Paraoptometrics interested in gaining access to these resources should request that their AOA member OD enroll them

This new AOA OD member benefit means free access to programs and services that offer education and staff training, significant discounts on education materials for purchase, discounts on registration fees for Optometry's Meeting®, and information communicated through AOA publications.

Who are Paraoptometrics?

Paraoptometrics are allied health professionals who assist optometrists in providing their highest level of vision care to patients. Front office procedures, chair-side assisting, pre-testing, contact lens instruction, frame styling and fitting, billing/coding, office manager, and vision therapy are just a few of the many duties paraoptometrics perform while working directly with an optometrist.
