What We Do
The South African Optometric Association is a professional body acting as the custodian of the profession of Optometry and Dispensing Opticians. The vision of the organisation is to be a valued and respected association at the forefront of eye care. The mission is to influence health policy and uphold high clinical standards in order to ensure equitable treatment of the profession within the health sector.
The South African Optometric Association ensures the viability of practices by developing descriptor codes from the basis of recommended tariff lists developed by independent networks which are linked to descriptor codes for use on invoices and claims to medical aids.
