From their website:
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!
