Founded in 1935, the Connecticut Opticians Association is dedicated to promoting the highest possible standard of
honor, integrity, and professionalism for opticianry in
the state of Connecticut. Our state was the first in the
nation to license opticians, and we consider our
obligation to the profession and to the patients of
Connecticut to be an ongoing process of improvement and
maintenance of the highest possible standards.
We hold that opticians and opticianry are a vital
part of the health care delivery system, and as a
professional organization representing opticians, we
encourage, provide, and promote standards of optical
competence, knowledge and performance through the
development of educational programs, training, and
credentialing of optical personnel.
We encourage all practicing Connecticut opticians to
join us in our efforts.
