A goal of this award is to invest in the evolution of the field of pediatric optometry, particularly the application of soft contact lenses for children’s vision disorders, by providing opportunities for optometry residents to be future practitioners, educators, and researchers.
To encourage talented persons to pursue full-time careers in Optometric research and education, the AOF offers fellowships to post graduate students (primarily optometrists) who are entering or continuing a full-time study that leads to the Masters or Ph.D. degree in vision science.
To encourage talented persons to pursue full-time careers in optometry, the American Optometric Foundation (AOF) is now accepting proposals for research grants sponsored by Vistakon. The grants will fund basic or clinical research in the area of soft disposable contact lenses.
