UOS Advocacy


Legislative Advocacy

To ensure that the concerns for quality patient care are addressed in the legislature, UOS leaders, with the assistance of the state medical society continue to maintain a strong, positive relationship with our state legislators. By having a “seat at the table,” we can improve our chances of influencing developments in favor of patient safety. As we educate our legislators about the practice of ophthalmology, we help strengthen their appreciation of our issues and foster their support. The UOS is represented at the Utah Medical Association with board positions on the UMA Legislative Committee.


Defining Ophthalmic Surgery to Protect Patients in Utah

The Utah Ophthalmology Society (UOS) advocates for high quality, safe eye care for all Utahns. We strongly believe that eye surgery should only be performed by medically and surgically trained ophthalmologists.
