The key to achieving this success would be ensuring that primary eye care services are economically viable and easily accessible to common public. AIOC 2018 theme is thus not just a true reflection of this vision but also Indian Optometric Association’s mandate for it’s fellow optometrists.

The 2018 edition of this conference would also be unique, as it brings together various national optometric associations of SAARC countries to deliberate & collaborate on responsive frameworks for inclusive next generation eye care. In line with WHO's Global Action Plan 2014-2019, a key outcome that this conference seeks to generate is a better understanding of the role of optometry in eradicating the 80% avoidable blindness in India and SAARC countries
The traditional core of optometry has been the assessment of visual health and management strategies centered on spectacle lens and contact lens therapy. This core, however, has expanded greatly over the past century to include a number of other important services. Today's optometry professionals are educated and trained in optometry discipline education to provide the full range of services thereby enhancing vision, protecting health and prevent avoidable blindness due to refractive errors and visual impairment by over 80%.
