Registration is open to both AOA/AOSA members and nonmembers with special members-only pricing available.

Expert-Led Continuing Education

Optometry’s Meeting provides leading-edge CE and professional development that includes over 250 hours of education available for doctors, paraoptometrics and optometry students. A robust schedule that consists of hands-on workshops, integrated education, peer-to-peer forums and more, Optometry’s Meeting delivers education that supports every member of the care team.

“Each year, Optometry’s Meeting strives to deliver education that’s well-rounded and on-trend to ensure attendees feel they have a tight grip on what’s to come. We’re proud to share that this year will boast the most diverse speaker pool since the AOA’s implementation of an updated review process in 2020. Not only is this a testament to the strength of our industry, but also to the community it requires to truly advance eye and vision care for our patients,” said Dr. Randall Kempfer, Co-Chair of the Education Center Committee.


Doctors can earn up to 36 credits and paraoptometrics can earn up to 32 credits across four days with industry-recognized speakers on a range of contemporary topics, including in-office surgical procedures, billing and coding, systemic disease, functional vision, practice management and more.
