The voice of UK optics

The Optical Confederation speaks and acts in a powerful and co-ordinated way for UK optical professionals, manufacturers, retailers, distributors and importers.

The Optical Confederation

What we do

Optometrists and opticians need to be able to deliver a service which ensures that patients have access to eye care, through the provider of their choice, whether in the community, in their own home (for the housebound) or in eye clinics.

Working with partner organisations, the Confederation achieves these objectives by sharing information, aligning views, co-ordinating action wherever possible, based on a set of core values.

Members stand for the delivery of high-quality services and products for all, on the basis of choice, delivered by open, fair and competitive markets. The Confederation will challenge anti-competitive behaviours wherever they occur.
