SVOS is the local affiliate of the California Optometric Association, one of twenty-five such societies in the state.

Of these, SVOS is one of the largest and most influential, boasting over 160 member doctors.  Our footprint stretches from Fairfield to Lake Tahoe, with Sacramento right in the center.  Our proximity to the Capitol allows our members a unique opportunity to be very involved in the legislation of our profession, including attending events like COA’s Legislative Day.  Meanwhile, having VSP Headquarters in our backyard also provides insight into the inner workings of the business of optometry.

Our members receive many benefits from their membership including free attendance at our General Meetings which occur six to seven times each year.  These meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at the Red Lion Woodlake Hotel in Sacramento.  Dinner is provided and vendors attend to showcase their products and answer questions.  A CE lecture is given during the meal for a minimum of two CE hours.  These meetings are a great way to interact with your colleagues, network with potential employers and earn a couple CE credits.
