The Beyond 20/20 Podcast
Beyond 2020 is a project by the Nebraska Optometric Association and their 275 doctors of optometry – independent primary health care professionals for the eye – who serve in more than 80 communities throughout Nebraska.
Hosted by Dr. Andrew Bateman, immediate past president of the NOA, Beyond 2020 features interesting conversations with Doctors of Optometry, thought leaders and other health experts about the latest trends in the industry and important information for consumers, patients and families.
Nebraska’s largest eye care profession includes more than 330 Doctors of Optometry serving in more than 80 communities across the state.
As primary eye care providers, Doctors of Optometry are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage disorders that affect the eye or vision.
They are an integral part of the health care team, earning their doctoral degree just as dentists, podiatrists and other doctors do. Optometry is one of the only doctoral-level health care professions to require continuing education.
