Welcome to the
Opticians Association of Vermont!

An introduction:
My name is Eric Williams.
I currently serve as the president of the Opticians Association of Vermont.
I welcome you to the official website for our professional state organization!
The  OAV is proud to offer educational opportunities for our members. We are dedicated to elevating and improving the services that we, as opticians, provide to the residents of the great state of Vermont.
 Opticianry is part of the healthcare field that works to improve and assist in the provision of sight.
We are vision care professionals.
We help people see.
My goals include increased awareness of our profession and continued improvement in the quality of the services that we provide. We support and help direct the professionals within our organization to better help our communities.
Remember that we not only affect how people see, but also how people ARE seen.
We have the opportunity and ability to positively impact the lives of our patients every single day! It starts with genuinely caring for our patients. We are eyecare professionals; it all revolves around "care".
The following video sums up a bit of what we do.


This YouTube video won the "Great American Optician" video contest:

Below is the first in a series of videos that are being created to increase the awareness of the profession of Opticianry.

I  have collaborated with filmmaker Michael Dubois and the Opticians Association of America to create this video to demonstrate the impact Opticians have in our lives every single day!
