About the NOA

The Nebraska Optometric Association's membership includes approximately 240 licensed doctors of optometry throughout the state. Nebraska optometrists are independent primary health care providers who examine, diagnose, treat and manage diseases and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures, as well as diagnose related systemic conditions.

Our Mission:

  • to improve the quality, availability and accessibility of eye and vision care in Nebraska;
  • to represent the optometric profession to government, third parties, and the public;
  • to assist members in conducting their practices successfully in accordance with the highest standards of patient care and efficiency; and
  • to develop a sense of community among members, thereby creating commitment to the profession of optometry.

The NOA encourages high ethical standards and continued post-graduate level professional education and research. The NOA utilizes its resources to promote and maintain high professional standards of eye care in Nebraska.
