Welcome to the Iowa Academy of Ophthalmology
The Iowa Academy of Ophthalmology (IAO) is a statewide organization representing Iowa Ophthalmologists and their patients. We are an affiliate of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The IAO was founded in 1961 as the Iowa Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. In 1989, the IAO incorporated as the Iowa Academy of Ophthalmology. Our current membership includes 85% of Ophthalmologists in Iowa.
The IAO is committed to serving our 150 plus Iowa eye doctors by monitoring state legislation and regulations that pertain to ophthalmic medicine, advocacy on public policy matters, continuing education, and public information regarding eye disease and treatment.
