Welcome to the IOA

The International Opticians Association is dedicated to the enhancement and development of the optical profession around the world. Work with the IOA to reach optical practitioners, promote your events and influence purchasing behaviour.

We are growing

In recent months the IOA has gained a fresh new image, a vibrant website and new members from countries that were previously not engaged with the IOA, notably Suriname, South Sudan, Portugal, Pakistan, Nigeria, Morocco, Indonesia, France and Cameroon. We are delighted to be expanding the organisation and enabling it to become culturally and professionally richer.

What we offer

The IOA offers a range of ways to communicate with members. From regular newsletters to our vibrant new website, why not get involved with the fastest growing optical organisation. The IOA covers news and events on its website and in the newsletter too, making it the perfect place to share your company updates.
