It is time for our annual selfie contest! To celebrate World Orthoptic Day we would like you to take your best selfie that relates to orthoptics. For example, wearing an eye patch, using an occluder, using prisms or using anything that is essential to your work as an orthoptist!

This year's theme: “Orthoptists in the COVID Pandemic”

Post your selfie on Twitter on World Orthoptic Day!

Monday, June 7th, 2021

Be sure to tag the IOA Twitter account and your colleagues using the hashtag: #orthopticselfie
Don’t forget to ask your colleagues, family, friends and patients to share your selfie photo on their social media channels.


What can I win?

There is a prize for the best Orthoptic Selfie. All photos with the hastag #orthopticselfie shared on Twitter and posted before Tuesday June 8, 2021 are eligible for the prize. The jury consists of a selection of volunteers from the IOA council of management. The prize is provided generously by Kay Pictures Ltd.

The prize is a Kay Pictures treasure box.


This is how we celebrate an online World Orthoptic Day on June 7th!
