With apologies from the authors of “Ophthalmology resident selection: current trends in selection criteria and improving the process” (Ophthalmology 2010;117:1041–7). AOA was erroneously identified as American Optometric Society. AOA in this article stands for the Alpha Omega Honor Society in the legends for Table 2, Figure 1, as well as in the Results and Discussion sections. The abbreviation refers to membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Status in the American Optometric Society was not a criteria used by any program directors.
