Be Part of a Greater Mission

Our Values Aligned

Your membership supports provincially focused public education efforts that seek to raise awareness about issues affecting eye health and vision and include:

  • Advertising in newspapers and magazines
  • Local radio and newspaper coverage
  • Paid blog campaigns
  • Sponsored social media posts
  • Collateral and resources provided at no charge to members

As a member, be the first to learn about news and updates that affect your profession and industry.

Through lobbying, grassroots advocacy, and negotiations on behalf of our members, we help to define health care policy as it relates to vision and eye health. We also foster inter-professional relations with health organizations and industry partners to advance eye health care in B.C.

We provide a wide range of programs, resources, services, and benefits to help our members succeed and thrive in practice.

We support our members in achieving professional excellence by providing doctors of optometry and optometric staff with continuing education, conferences and seminars that allow them to enhance their knowledge and skills and stay current with advances in the profession.

See our list of upcoming events.

Newly graduated members receive a 50% discount on the annual conference registration fees in their first full year of practice. For details on special rates available through your Association membership, please contact us.

Members are invited to volunteer with us to support the profession and the Association. Our committed volunteers contribute in numerous ways, including:

  • advocating on behalf of doctors
  • working on key awareness campaigns
  • participating on association committees
  • representing optometry at trade shows and other events

In turn, volunteering can help members develop a network of like-minded doctors and develop professionally. Members are invited to participate, either by joining a committee of interest or by running in an election for the Board. More detailed information can be found on the BC Doctors of Optometry member site or by contacting the Association.
