The author comments on banning optometrists from attending the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS). He says that the ban was insensitive and uncalled for. He also wants optometrists and ophthalmologists to collaborate with each other. In view of this, Dr. Richard Lindstorm convened a group in the 2008 ASCRS meeting to discuss integrated patient care.
