About Us

The Illinois Optometric Association (IOA) strives to be the resource for eye care information that affects the care of patients. IOA regularly posts current research into eye care issues, current studies and findings related to eye health, and outlines of current and emerging eye care pharmaceutical products.

IOA works with health care professionals to show the optometrists' scope of practice in order to work together toward the overall health of patients. IOA has found that optometrists are often the entry point into the health care system for many individuals. Optometrists frequently diagnose ocular manifestations of systemic disease such as diabetic retinopathy and neuro-ophthalmic disease.

IOA strives to educate the general public about optometry, cutting-edge eye care information, and IOA programs that provide free eye care information and free complete eye health and vision examinations.
