To promote diversity and equity in the optometric profession for generations to come, the American Optometric Association and the American Optometric Student Association have created the AOA/AOSA Opportunities in Optometry Grant program. This fund is designed as a one-time stipend for under-represented minority students interested in the field of optometry to help defray costs associated with applying to optometry school.
Due to the number of children with eye and vision problems across the United States, Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation, and Johnson & Johnson Vision created InfantSEE®, a no-cost public health program developed to provide professional eye care for infants nationwide.
