Our Regions

The WCO works closely with the six WCO world regions in order to provide assistance, share news and ensure that global optometry is well represented within the WCO membership base. Each region selects 3 representatives to serve on the WCO Board of Directors.  All regions are also represented on each of the WCO standing committees. We thank our regions for their work in the development of optometry.
