AOA Ophthalmic Council™ key to year’s success

February 17, 2012

Each year we reflect on achievements and celebrate progress. Yet our strongest industry supporters, the Ophthalmic Council™, are the key to this success year after year. We sincerely appreciate all that they do for the profession of optometry and the AOA.

In 2012, we will continue to foster an environment of innovation and work to create value for you, our members. Expanded resources and tools are essential to success in practice and help ensure you are able to provide quality care to patients in offices across the nation. With the support of these companies, the AOA is able to provide breakthrough education and services for you.

“The Ophthalmic Council™ is extremely valuable to the profession because of the interactions with industry leaders, and has become a vehicle for industry and the Optometric profession to work together to benefit the patients that we both serve every day,” said Howard J. Braverman, O.D., chair of the AOA Ophthalmic Council™.

The Ophthalmic Council™ was created in 1998 as a way to facilitate this vital communication. Serving as an informal avenue for industry leaders to share ideas, the council assists the AOA in thriving and succeeding in optometry.

A firm’s participation in the Ophthalmic Council™ begins with sponsorship support of projects or programs—either with a single sponsorship or collective support in several areas—as well as a demonstrated consistency with the AOA’s goals and practices.

“Recognizing those companies at the top tier of support of organized optometry, the council ensures an ongoing dialogue that benefits the profession and industry,” Dr. Braverman said.

Remember the Ophthalmic Council™’s vital contributions to the profession as you plan for your own success in the new year.
