Who We Are
The Opticians Association of Virginia is the exclusive representation of Opticians in Virginia. We are a non-profit association represented by volunteers on the Board of Directors.
What We Do
The OAV represents Virginia’s opticians in the legislature and follows potential changes to laws that may affect Virginia’s Opticians. We also assist opticians in furthering their knowledge by hosting two educational conferences a year.
If you want to be respected as a licensed professional, you must be trained and continue the education process throughout your career.
