In order to qualify, individuals are evaluated against the highest standards of professional competence. The letters “FAAO” after an optometrist’s name signify to colleagues and patients that rigorous qualifications for fellowship have been met. Less than 10 percent of practicing optometrists are Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry.

The American Academy of Optometry (AAO) enhances excellence in optometric practice by fostering research and disseminating knowledge in vision science through its journal, Optometry and Vision Science, and the continuing education presented at its annual meeting. Fellows of the Academy are committed to the premise that learning is a lifelong obligation of a professional, as is the commitment to expand the profession’s knowledge base through ongoing fellowship and exchange.
