World Optometry Week 2022 – Highlighting Optometry Around the Globe

Each year, WCO celebrates World Optometry Week (March 21-25) and World Optometry Day (March 23). WCO is excited to support our colleagues and increase awareness of optometry around the globe! This year, we are sharing a video series highlighting how the optometry community works towards addressing vision care needs worldwide, with each video focusing on a different WCO Region. Thank you to our regional representatives who have shared their thoughts:

  • Mr. Frank Magupa | AFCO
  • Dr. Carly Lam | APCO
  • Dr. Rajeev Prasad | APCO
  • Dr. Xuan Li Tan | APCO
  • Dr. Carlos Chacón | ALDOO
  • Prof. Edward Mallen | ECOO
  • Mr. Ahmed Tairi | EMCO
  • Dr. Roger Jordan | North America

We hope you can take these concepts and apply them in your work to help move optometry forward. While we celebrate World Optometry Day once a year, it is important to keep advocating for optometry and representing our profession to the best of your ability.
