    They should have kept the name. It's much better than OAA: https://oaa.org/about

    I am not sure why ECPs like Os and As so much.

    I've been saying forever that the idea of an optician's guild is gold.

    It would be treasured by people seeking an expert, not a fool.

    In today’s age of heightened sensitivities, this may be too tribal.

    They'd just be jealous, as you show up at educational events sporting a dark blue blazer with a cool insignia stitched onto the breast pocket...but not so high up that the pocket protector full of p.d. sticks and marking pens block the view...

    ...and the wallet pocket of your khakis bulge with dispensing fees...

    ...and don't forget the wildly colorful eyewear.

    That's one sexy optician right there.

    Guilds are a little to close to unions imo......

    So I'm all for them.

    My opticians are onionized. Be careful of what you wish for.
    BTW, it’s not a typo.

    Caramelized. You can do it in a crock pot, no fuss no muss.
