Our aim is to achieve eye health for all, delivered through world-class services, provided by regulated community-based professionals operating in a competitive environment. In the UK we are founder members of the Optical Confederation and supporters of Vision 2020 UK and the UK Vision Strategy.
Our members account for over three quarters of market activity and two thirds of eye examinations in the UK and 55 per cent in the Republic of Ireland.
