As the membership organization for AOP, ATPO is an organization committed to high standards and professional ethics dedicated to quality ophthalmic medical care under the direction of an ophthalmologist. ATPO represents AOP, including ophthalmic assistants, technicians, technologists, photographers, and orthoptists. As a benefit to ATPO members, there is a reduced registration fee.
