The OAV is the exclusive representative of over 1,900 opticians licensed by the State of Virginia.
Our website provides our members and the public with information about the OAV and the role of Opticianry in improving the vision of all Virginians.
One of the best ways to learn is to be exposed to other opticians who can motivate and encourage you. At the OAV Fall Saturday Symposium you will learn new techniques and
get creative ideas. Meet and network with others who can inspire you.
The Fall Symposium creates opportunities to build partnerships and exposes you to new
systems that might work for you. All education is ABO Certified for continuing education purposes, but you don’t have to be certified to benefit from all the symposium has to offer!
