"Optometry is a legislated profession if you like it or not. If you go about your daily business at your practice, you have to remember that it was the COA that worked hard to make sure you can practice the way you want to practice. You might not agree with everything they do but they do so for the greater good of the profession. If you want to make your voice heard, you need to get involved and not just complain or cancel your affiliation. COA is like the knight in shining armor in that they exist to fight for the Optometrist's rights and protect our livelihood. I owe COA for a lot of my comfortable lifestyle and that is why I support them."
