|About||AAOO aims to deliver ophthalmic optics education beyond the scope of TAFE, other RTOs and undergraduate optometry programmes in Australia.|
|Mission||To redefine the state of advanced ophthalmic optics education delivery in Australia in order to be commensurate with industry world leaders.|
The Academy of Advanced Ophthalmic Optics aims to deliver education that reaches beyond the scope of TAFE/OTEN, other RTO’s and undergraduate optometry and vision science programmes providing optical and ophthalmic optics education in Australia. AAOO have developed a sequence of courses that will take graduates from the current Certificate IV and develop their knowledge of optics and lens design, giving stronger, more effective Optical Dispensers who can deliver premium patient care.
Effective Optometric practitioners recognise that the patient experience does not end at the consulting room door. Developing a strong understanding of the application of ophthalmic dispensing is an indispensable part of a successful practice by ensuring the accurate and appropriate realisation of the Optometric consultation. Integration into the patient experience is enhanced and the patient deliverables and patient profitability are refined through the development of Optical Dispensing from the viewpoint of Optometry and Optometric practice. In short, best practice recognises that the engagement with the patient reaches far beyond the consultation chair.
Our content is developed by our industry leading experts to provide functional knowledge for existing practitioners to develop their ability to recognise the unique opportunities and challenges presented by modern optics. By extending their knowledge both patient and practice outcomes will be enhanced, giving strength to both practitioners and practices.
