AIO Vision Ltd - The Association for Independent Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians

The origins of the Association for Independent Optometry can be traced back to the formation of the NHS in 1948. At that time there were great organisational difficulties and little guidance for practitioners. It was at this time that two dedicated optometrists, Stanley Wells and Norman Archbold, founded the forerunner of the AIO, the Optical Practitioners Standing Conference (OPSC).

Their view was that optometrists (or ophthalmic opticians as we were then known) should practice professionally and ethically, and that the best way of achieving this was in independent “rooms practice” with no window display or the like.

Their idea was that the OPSC could gather like-minded practitioners together for an annual conference to share ideas and attend lectures a forerunner of today’s CET.

The deliberations of OPSC were rarely reported in detail but the strength was (and still is with AIO) that it forms a platform for discussions among colleagues in varied and congenial surroundings.
