We extend an invitation to any Ohio optometrist to become a member of the Ohio Optometric Association (OOA).

Members of organized optometry are eligible for numerous benefits and resources that contribute to your personal, professional, and economic objectives. From access to professional staff at the OOA and the American Optometric Association to camaraderie at the local level, your optometric associations are a vital resource for eye and vision healthcare professionals throughout Ohio. 

Membership dues equate to about $158 a month, or about the cost of a contact lens exam. Click here for current year dues information.
