Optometry Ireland – Your Association in action
Optometry Ireland is the recognised voice of the profession with Government bodies. This is because Optometry Ireland represents Optometrists as individual professionals rather than business entities. Optometry Ireland speaks for all Optometrists, regardless of their differing working circumstances. We seek to obtain what is best for the profession as a whole.
Optometry Ireland works to ensure that Optometrists have a strong collective voice to protect the profession against competing interests which do not serve our goals. Over the years, Optometry Ireland has fought much adversity in order to protect both the profession and public.

Optometry Ireland (OI) is the professional representative body for Optometrists in Ireland
The majority of Optometrists in Ireland and a large number Optometrists registered overseas enjoy OI membership. OI is comprised of individual optometrist members each of whom has an equal voice in running it and an equal vote in the decisions of the organisation.
Our professional affixes M.A.O.I. and F.A.O.I. are the publicly recognised indicators of our professionalism both nationally and internationally.
