The majority of the membership practices in Southern California, with other members located in Northern California, Nevada, Hawaii, Florida, and a few other states.

Many of our members are distinguished lecturers, speakers, researchers, and teachers. A great number have held high ranking positions in local and state associations and societies around the country. Some of those include: the California State Board of Optometry, the Hawaii State Board of Optometry, the American Academy of Optometry, the California Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association, and the National Board of Examiners in Optometry.

JOIN AAOS

Quality continuing education courses at a convenient location – As a benefit for being member, an annual 16 hours of CE credit can be obtained through 4 events held quarterly throughout the year. To obtain 16 hours of CE credit from any other source would cost hundreds of dollars.

Great networking opportunities – with 150+ active members, we are the largest Optometric Society in California. Large turnouts at our popular CE events promise a great way to network with colleagues.

Social events to promote camaraderie – There is a good chance you’ll run into an old classmate or establish a lot of new contacts.

A voice for the Asian American Optometric community – We work closely with The Southern California College of Optometry and Western University of Health Sciences: College of Optometry to support the future generations of Optometrists through scholarships. As a member, you will be able to participate and help mentor future doctors at events like our May Honor’s Banquet.

We give back! You’ll be given an opportunity to contribute to charities by participating in our fun and very popular CE raffles. For instance, we have raised thousands of dollars for charities such as the Haitian Earthquake fund through CE events.
