The National Association of VA Optometrists (NAVAO) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1977.
Our Board and Committee Members are all volunteers.
The objectives of the NAVAO are to encourage and promote the best possible primary eye and vision care for our nation’s Veterans and to promote the education, training, professional growth, and welfare of optometric staff, research/clinical fellows, residents, and students.
The NAVAO is also dedicated to fostering camaraderie and professional development among VA optometrists. Any VA staff, attending, consultant, research/clinical fellow, resident optometrist, or any other optometrist having an interest in VA optometry is eligible for membership.
