The Opticians Association of America (OAA) is the only national organization representing opticianry’s business, professional, educational, legislative, and regulatory interests. Under OAA’s very broad umbrella, individuals providing eyeglasses or contact lenses to consumers, as well as owner/managers of retail optical firms, state opticianry societies, and suppliers to professional opticianry find a common goal in advancing America’s opticians.


COAT is the official Texas state society for the Opticians Association of America. This means COAT members are automatically OAA members as well. Click here to view OAA membership benefits.
