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.
The inaugural Optrafair London will be held this weekend at the Kensington Olympia Exhibition Centre. You can meet FODO staff and our Board at the Optical Confederation stand on the balcony level.
We have appointed Ann Blackmore as our new Head of Policy and Strategy, and she will be supported by Jakob Stenkvist in the newly created role of Policy Officer.
Mercy Jeyasingham MBE has been appointed as the new Chief Executive of VISION 2020 UK, the umbrella charity for the sight loss and eye health sector.
