About the New Mexico Optometric Association

The New Mexico Optometric Association (NMOA) is the professional organization of optometrists in New Mexico. Over 150 New Mexico Doctors of Optometry are voluntary members of the Association.

For over 100 years, the NMOA has assisted its members in providing the highest standard of professional care to their patients by sponsoring continuing education programs for doctors, advocating in local and state governments for programs and laws that represent patients' best interests, and providing information to assist doctors practicing in a variety of clinical settings. The NMOA remains committed to representing future generations of optometrists as they provide the most up-to-date eye care to New Mexico's citizens.

The NMOA also answers questions from the public and provides referrals to eye care providers upon request.
