The voice of optometry and optics in Europe

ECOO Blue Book
The ECOO Blue Book is an aggregation of data on the professions of optometry and optics in countries across Europe.
ECOO Accreditation Agency
The ECOO Accreditation Agency accredits educational institutions in Europe that offer the European Diploma in Optometry or the European Qualification in Optics.
We have created a dedicated information hub on environmental sustainability with useful resources for optometrists and opticians.
The European Council of Optometry and Optics (ECOO) represents the interests of optometrists and opticians across Europe. Our members are national professional associations from 21 countries who together represent more than 150,000 opticians and optometrists. ECOO aims to promote eye health to the public across borders and to harmonise clinical and educational standards of optometric and optical practice throughout Europe.
