Advocating Optometry: An Ocular (Short) Film on


WASHINGTON, D.C.—At the AOA’s Congressional Advocacy Conference in September, students came together from across the continent to support advocacy of optometry at the national level. A major voice at the event was the American Optometric Student Association (AOSA), 250 members of which played a vital role in asserting the issues facing the optometric profession today. In a joint project, the AOSA and produced a video depicting students’ perspectives on eyecare related topics that demand White House attention. Watch these future ODs forge a path to their future, and a successful future for eyecare, in VM’s Featured Video: Students at the Core of the Optometric Profession.
