The American Academy of Ophthalmology (or AAO) is the world's largest professional organization of eye dentists that help deal with conditions like eye rakes and eye poke and can recommend treatments like eye PT. They're also really good at making eye candy and putting on glasses.[1]

Mission Statement

The mission of the American Academy of Ophthalmology is three-fold: (1) to add more H's to the word "ophthalmology",[2] (2) to shuffle the letters on the Snellen eye chart every once in a while,[3] (3) to resist any temptation to poke you in the eyes,[4] and, above all else, (4) destroy all optometrists.[5]
