Dr. Ronald Danner is a fellow in the American Academy of Optometry and attended the annual meeting in Seattle, Wash.

Danner attended Academy 1999 in Seattle, Wash., from Dec. 9-13. Academy ’99 is the annual meeting of the American Academy of Optometry. Highlights of the meeting included more than 200 hours of continuing education courses, scientific presentations and more than 190 exhibitors. More than 4,000 optometrists, vision care professionals, vision scientists and optometry students from around the world attended this prestigious meeting.

Professionals who become fellows of the Academy must complete a rigorous candidacy process. Candidates submit extensive written work and must also pass an oral examination. A panel of leading optometrists and vision scientists must approve both the written work and oral examination.

“Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry constantly strive for the highest professional standards. The American Academy of Optometry annual meetings are recognized as presenting the latest in research and information on patient and vision care,” said Anthony J. Adams, president of the Academy.

Danner graduated from Illinois College of Optometry and practices in Craig, Steamboat Springs and Meeker.
