IOA partners with Academy of Advanced Ophthalmic Optics

The International Opticians Association (IOA) has announced a new partnership with the Australian-based Academy of Advanced Ophthalmic Optics (AAOO).

Founded by Grant and Thao Hannaford, the AAOO CPD and mentorship programs focus on giving optical professionals a practical framework for growth, combining practical optometry and optical dispensing with the latest in ophthalmic research and development.

Mr and Ms Hannaford said they were “delighted to announce our collaboration with the International Opticians Association in the delivery of industry leading education”.

“It is clear that the values of the IOA and AAOO are well aligned in our goals to provide a contiguous level of excellence in our industry internationally. This partnership represents an opportunity to have superior optics education become available on a global scale, overcoming geographic obstacles with maximum efficacy,” the statement said.

IOA President Donald Crichton said his organisation has “exciting plans with the AAOO” with news on “webinars and more” to be released in coming months.
