What We Do

The ISO provides educational opportunities, resources for practice development and management, and actively participates in the creation and implementation of laws and regulations that affect the practice of medicine and ophthalmology.


Through these efforts, the ISO helps its physician-members advocate for their patients’ complete eye care needs and overall medical needs in a safe, professional environment.
