American Optometric Student Association (AOSA)

The AOSA is the student extension of the American Optometric Association (AOA) which represents over 32,000 optometrists throughout the country. The AOSAs mission is to promote the profession of optometry, to help improve the visual welfare as well as the general health of the public and enhance the education of future optometrists. It is a great way to become involved and find out more about what is going on in the profession of optometry. Involvement in AOSA will help prepare you to become a practicing optometrist and to step right into the AOA after graduation. The AOA is a legislative body of state associations that work together to improve eye care and the practice of optometry. The association is composed of three levels: local, state and federal.
