Stronger together - why should you join?

Optometry South Australia is proud to represent over 90% of South Australian optometrists. It is the only professional organisation in our state committed to supporting you throughout all your career stages, regardless of where you work and where your life takes you. Membership of Optometry SA ensures that you are never alone because we support you with the tools, advice and information that you need for your professional success. As we are part of a national network, you will also be joining the largest community of optometrists in Australia, supporting our united commitment to deliver the very best in eye health and patient care.

We strongly believe that the more we can work together, the more we can create a more rewarding and secure future for optometrists. If it is important to optometry, it is important to you and therefore important to us, which means we have your back.

Since our establishment 102 years ago, Optometry South Autralia has remained 100% owned and driven by our optometrist members. As the peak professional body for optometrists, when we speak, key influencers listen which is why we are effective at delivering the necessary policy changes that protect, grow and progress our sector.

Working closely with other healthcare professions, we promote a greater understanding of our profession's essential role in broader healthcare management.

We are here to always support you, making it easier for you to be the best optometrist you can be. The benefits of membership are many and the value we deliver, extensive. We encourage you to lead with us, to engage with us and to promote with us.
