This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Opticians Association of New Mexico (OANM.) The annual educational conference was held on Saturday, October 20th at the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI) in Albuquerque. Three of our Eye Associates Opticians are alumni of SIPI: Katherine Hicks, Harriet Aguilar, and Kathleen Salas.
The opticians were offered nine classes, all for continuing education credits for Optician (ABOC) and contact lens fitters (NCLE.) Eye Associates made a generous donation toward the cost to bring in two of the national speakers from New York City and Florida. Frame and lens vendors filled the main lobby and supported the event with tables and displays.
Eye Associates was well represented by 18 of our 32 Opticians.
