American Academy of Optometry Launches Online ‘Live Learning Center’


ORLANDO, Fla.—The American Academy of Optometry (AAO) has announced the launch of a Live Learning Center, the organization’s online resource connecting optometrists and vision scientists with educational session recordings from AAO annual meetings. The initiative aims to keep both members and non-members abreast of industry trends while earning CE hours throughout the year.

According to AAO, the Live Learning Center content can be viewed at any time from any internet connected device and serves as a professional development tool for use between conferences, especially for those who were unable to attend or missed specific sessions due to scheduling issues.

The recorded sessions are free for Academy members and available for a fee for non-members, and users may purchase tests for select courses for $25 to claim COPE-approved distance learning credits, AAO said.

For assistance accessing the AAO Live Learning Center, call the support line at (289) 695-5400 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or email

AAO’s next annual meeting will be held Nov. 12 to 15, 2014 in Denver, Colo. For more information, visit
