Founded in 1922, the American Academy of Optometry is committed to promoting the art and science of vision care through lifelong learning.
The optometry field is constantly changing. To provide the highest quality continuing education and the most current vision science research, the Academy's annual meeting includes nearly 300 hours of Lectures & Workshops, symposia, and scientific lecture and poster presentations over 4 days. And, besides all that, the Academy is FUN!
Fitting Peripheral Prisms for Hemianopia is a continuing education workshop that has been running at AAO for many years. Doctors will receive thorough training in the concept of utilizing the peripheral vision as a means for visual field expansion. After the educational portion, doctors immediately have the opportunity to apply what they've learned. They will be able to fit and work with hemianopic patients who volunteer to be a part of the workshop.
