Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Utah Optometric Association. A message from our President Rob Gray:
Dear Fellow Eye Doctors,

Thank you for your support of our great organization, the Utah Optometric Association (UOA). The UOA is an organization that is the only organization that advocates for your right to practice and for your scope of practice. The UOA and the American Optometric Association (AOA) persistently are a voice for all optometrists in our state, towards our state, our national leaders and politicians. 

The UOA will be sponsoring a “Utah Optometry Day on the Hill” this year on Friday January 26th, 2018. We are sponsoring a grab and go breakfast where you can meet and great your representatives. Plan to come and get involved in the event, the FIRST ever for the association. 

In short, the board and I will advocate and represent optometry in Utah. We will not be shy, nor bullied by those who are not representing the best interests of our patient’s visual welfare. Please consider volunteering for one of our committees or state day task force. We need your help and your voice!

Thank you for your membership. Membership has grown by 30% in the last two years and we plan to continue to grow more and add more members every day. Finally, as the first line to America’s greatest song lets advocate together “Oh, say can you SEE”. May we continue to be the leaders in vision and sight in our great State of Utah.

Sincerely,

Robert Gray, OD
President 2017- 2018
