American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control
The AAOMC forwards the science of Orthokeratology.
The AAOMC (formerly the OAA) was founded in 2002 by a group of concerned educators, researchers, and clinicians based in the United States. These lay and professional men and women foresaw the need to have an unbiased organization that was not accountable to any one group or special interest. The academy at its conception was to represent the US community of eye care professionals. However, as the news of the academy quickly spread worldwide the organization grew to encompass members in over twenty countries.
The AAOMC has grown in scope since it was formed at the first Global Orthokeratology Symposium. In the last few years with the launch of the fellowship program and our landmark education symposia - Vision By Design, the academy has completed one part of its mission in educating the eye care community and the public about Orthokeratology. Membership in the AAOMC is open to any licensed professional who has an interest in the specialty of Orthokeratology, this includes: doctors of Optometry and Ophthalmology, Opticians, researchers, educators and students.
