Allergan photo contest travel grant

Did you know that globally, 1.8 billion people suffer from presbyopia and 128 million are right here in the U.S.? Did you also know that 100% of adults are at risk of developing presbyopia?

Allergan is offering 50 students the chance to win travel grants to Optometry’s Meeting® 2022 in Chicago by submitting a photo that depicts presbyopia along with a 25-word description of the photo.


  • First place—$750.
  • Second place—$500.
  • Third place—$350.
  • The remaining top 47 entries will receive $250 each.

Travel grant winners are determined by the AOSA’s executive council, representing a range of schools and interests.

The top 50 winners will also be invited to attend a special luncheon at Optometry's Meeting, sponsored by Allergan, on Saturday, June 18. At the luncheon, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the diagnosis and treatment of presbyopia from one of the foremost experts in this area.

Deadline for entry is April 15, 2022.


No more than one submission per student. Each photo must be accompanied by a description (25 words or less) of how the photo represents the symptoms of presbyopia. By submitting an image and description, you agree that AOSA has permission to reproduce and share your photo.
