My favorite thing about being a part of the AZOA is knowing that I made a positive difference in the profession of optometry in Arizona, but also I truly enjoy getting to spend time with my colleagues at all the events the AZOA hosts.

Dr. Justin Jones
Premiere Eye Care
Being in private practice, I sometimes feel like I’m on a desert island all by myself. My favorite thing about being part of the AZOA is the chance to talk with dozens of individuals going through the exact same thing I am going through. I always come away from the meetings feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the world!
