Optometric Societies

The MOA’s local Optometric Societies are the bedrock of our organization.

During local society meetings, members are able to participate in continuing education opportunities and discuss topics that are crucial to our profession.

We also use our society meetings to network with local legislative leaders to further optometry’s position in the state of Missouri.
