About the OANM

Opticians Association of New Mexico

    The Opticians Association of New Mexico (OANM) is a non-profit state organization representing the uniformity of formal education in opticianry.

    The Opticians Association of New Mexico's primary goal is to establish a means of education in the field of opticianry for state opticians, apprentices, ophthalmic technicians, assistants and for anyone working in, or aspiring to work in the eye care field. We also welcome individuals whose state borders New Mexico and organizations or businesses throughout the United States.

    Our immediate and ongoing goal is to assist opticians and related professionals in becoming nationally certified by the American Board of Opticians and provide educational workshops as a means for continuing education credits. In addition, we are exploring how we might assist those individuals who are seeking certification from the National Contact Lens Examiners (NCLE) or continuing education credits.

    OANM's long-term goal is to establish standards for an associate degree in opticianry and assist local community colleges in providing a medium for earning degrees.

    OANM is dedicated to advancing the quality of eye care in the state of New Mexico and providing a medium for professional development of state opticians.
