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. 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 and Myopia Control. 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.
