The Best Education and The Brightest Minds in Ortho-K & Myopia Control

AAOMC membership gives you access to the best Ortho-K continuing education and the brightest minds in Ortho-K as well as camaraderie and mentorship.

The Value of Membership

In practice, like in life, there are three things that motivate us to succeed: desperation, inspiration and purpose. Corneal reshaping offers our office the avenue in which we fulfill our need for purpose. The AAOMC provides the unique setting for continued growth in this exciting and profitable specialty care; I strongly recommend attending their annual meeting.

- Nicholas Despotidis, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, FIAO


Join A Community Of Passionate Men & Women devoted to Ortho-k and Myopia Control

The most valuable benefit of the AAOMC is the sense of belonging to an institution of Ortho-K practitioners providing an organized validation of what you do. You are not isolated in this strange world of Orthokeratology.

– Pedro Gomez, O.D.


Vision By Design: The Best Way To Learn/Improve Your Skills

Ortho-K and myopia control is THE best addition to one's practice in 2016.  VBD is the only meeting where you can start with the basics in the Bootcamp Program, or improve your problem solving skills as an experienced corneal reshaping specialist.  I've attended the last 7 years, and keep returning for the invaluable pearls I learn, to help me take better care of patients.

- Kevin Reeder, O.D.


The Care Your Patients Deserve

Ortho-K is not only the right thing to offer your patients - it's safer than refractive surgery & effective at controlling myopia progression.

- Rob Gerowitz, O.D., FIAO


What Can Ortho-K Do For Your Bottom Line?

Ortho-K has improved my bottom line immensely. I'm reimbursed enough that I don't have to put a time limit on my patient encounters. It allows me to spend the extra time with my patients to better understand their needs.
