Some helpful reminders:

Your dues are payable by January 1st each year.  For your convenience, we offer a variety of payment options:

  • Online Self-Pay – Log in to your account at to view and pay your invoice via credit card.
  • Automatic Billing – Provide NYSOA Headquarters with a valid credit card to set up automatically recurring payments on a monthly or quarterly basis. Please note that payment plans do not roll over from year to year, so if you had a plan in place for 2017, make sure to contact the NYSOA to re-enroll for 2018.

Should you choose to pay in installments in 2018, please note that quarterly payments are required, at a minimum, in order to remain in good standing.

If you need to change your membership classification, please contact us at your earliest convenience. The open enrollment period is from January 1 to April 30.

Remember: as we continue to face a rapidly changing landscape, your support is more crucial to our success than ever. The AOA and the NYSOA are the only organizations advocating for both your patients’ health and your professional success. Working together, we are shaping the way optometry is viewed by the media, government, our medical colleagues, insurers and industry, as well as the public at large. But we cannot protect the rights of optometrists and advocate for our profession without a strong base of support and the personal commitment of our members. Your dues dollars are necessary for us to maintain a careful watch in Albany and Washington while advancing the professional standing of optometry and providing you with the latest and best information and access to a variety of resources.

Our member optometrists are the foundation and heart of the NYSOA, and we thank you for your continued support of our mission!

P.S. We are also accepting donations to the NYSOA's Political Action Committee and the Children's Vision Coalition. Please make a contribution today and help us meet our goals for these important initiatives!
