The Federation of (Ophthalmic and Dispensing) Opticians represents eye care providers and registered opticians in business in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Our aim is to achieve eye health for all, delivered through world-class services, provided by regulated community-based professionals operating in a competitive environment. In the UK we are founder members of the Optical Confederation and supporters of Vision 2020 UK and the UK Vision Strategy.
Our members account for over three quarters of market activity and two thirds of eye examinations in the UK and 55 per cent in the Republic of Ireland.
Each year the FODO Board meets in a strategy away date to review likely developments in the UK and Irish optical (and wider healthcare) sectors and plan ahead. Chief Executive David Hewlett reports.
Catch up on the policy developments and major issues affecting the UK optical sector over the last year.
To mark 30 years at the forefront of UK optics FODO are inviting Optrafair attendees to meet their sector-leading legal and business advisors for free drop in sessions.
The Optical Confederation's annual Vouchers at a Glance card has been released. FODO members can order free copies online or pick them up at our stand at this year's Optrafair.
