The American Academy of Optometry has extended the cancelation deadline for military personnel.


"The Academy understands the unique situation that affects our military personnel in terms of travel and education reimbursement. 

The Academy will extend the cancelation deadline and issue a full refund for all military if funding does not come through by October 20, 2013. 

If you have any questions please contact Dana Edwards at"


In addition, those individuals who are sitting for the fellowship can change to the 1 day rate and receive a refund of the difference.
