Welcome to Opticians Association Of Georgia
 

The Association's Mission: The Opticians Association Of Georgia is a professional association that represents opticians and contact lens technicians throughout the state.  The Association's primary mission is to maintain high standards of practice within the profession to protect the health and welfare of the public.  The Association seeks to accomplish its mission by protecting and expanding the ability of its members to compete in the prescription eyewear marketplace.

Strength In Unity: In today's complex legislative and regulatory climate, professional occupations have learned that their survival often depends on collective action and unity of purpose.  The Association speaks for Georgia opticians and contact lens technicians with a single voice.  The membership and participation of all opticians provide the Association with a voice that is strong enough to command respect in the halls of government.

Information Services: The Association serves as a clearinghouse of information on a broad range of subjects: legislative and regulatory issues, technical developments within the industry, upcoming meetings and conferences, publications of special interest to opticians and contact lens technicians, and the activities of local sections.  The Association's newsletter is distributed free of charge to members in good standing.
