Join the IOA Today


The Illinois Optometric Association (IOA) is a non-profit professional society. We provide an array of high quality services to advance the profession and its practice in Illinois. Our members receive significant discounts on all IOA continuing education courses. The association is very active in monitoring health care trends in both the public and private sectors. The IOA works closely with all government-funded health care programs, particularly Medicare, Medicaid and Kid Care. The IOA makes available to all members the opportunity to discuss billing and policy concerns with knowledgeable staff. A special benefit for IOA members is our close working relationship with the Department of Professional Regulations. Being "next door" allows the IOA staff to understand situations and solve problems for you when they occasionally occur within the bureaucracy.

In view of today's rapidly changing health care environment, participation in organized optometry is essential for staying current on new issues and for professional success.
