Barry Santini

(Press Release)
The board of directors for the Society to Advance Opticianry has named member Barry E. Santini, O.O. as the organization’s 2016 Ophthalmic Optician of the Year.

Santini was chosen for his high level of service to the profession and his patients for more than 20 years. To qualify for the award, an optician must be a current member of the SAO in the year they are being considered, and must advance opticianry through the promotion of higher education and certification levels for opticians. They must not be a current officer or board member of the SAO during the prior year they are being considered for this honor.

Santini has demonstrated leadership qualities, been an active member of NYSO and has written many articles for optical industry magazines. As a New York licensed optician in both eyewear and contacts, he is a respected master optician that owns his business and still has time to communicate effectively on social media.

The Society to Advance Opticianry is a credentialing organization which promotes college education and licensing and/or certification credentials for opticians in both eyewear and contact lenses. The SAO provides mentoring services to its candidate members working toward full membership. For more information, please visit
