About Us

Providing innovation, insight, knowledge and training

OSA is the Optical Suppliers Association, providing innovation, insight, knowledge and training for the whole of the UK optical industry. We support a wide range of activities that benefit the sector as a whole and the people who work within it.

We provide a thriving network for companies involved in all aspects of manufacturing, distribution and supply of lenses, frames, ophthalmic instruments and equipment, contact lenses, consumables and accessories, as well as shopfitters and providers of IT and business services to optical practices.

OSA is delighted to be working with Media 10 to help deliver 100% Optical between 29-31 Jan 2022. After a challenging 2020 for everyone, 100% Optical will be a brilliant opportunity to get the whole optical sector together at one major event.

We look forward to welcoming exhibitors and delegates to the OSA stand at 100% Optical in May.
