Welcome , our new member
The Optometrists Association of Kenya is professional association whose main focus is to address the welfare of optometrists and advocacy for delivery of quality eye care.
The association started with the membership of 9 members but has since grown to a membership of more than 260 optometrists which represents nearly 60% of the optometrist across the country
The key role of the association is to advance the interests of optometrists as professional and optometry as a profession. In addition, the association in collaboration with her partner’s is involved in advocacy of eye care and general health through our programs both offline and online.
Legislation and regulation of the industry which is highly unregulated remains at the heart of the aspirations of the association. The association has already embarked on a parliamentary route to bring this dream into a reality.
The association is an affiliate member of the Africa Council Of Optometry ( AFCO) and the World Council of Optometry (WCO).
AOK is a public-focused association that advocates for high quality and affordable eye care services to the Kenyan populace through its members, while also giving them access to valuable information on eye care, vision and health.
The association also advocates for the optometric profession as well as promoting and protecting its interest by, providing a strong and unified position of support for its welfare.
