What is SECO International?

Since 1924, Optometry's Education Destination

The world's leading annual Congress, an exciting new healthcare business management meeting, twelve state member associations, six associate member associations from around the world, and the premier online Optometry education portal are just part of what has made SECO International the leader in Optometric education since 1924.

SECO provides outstanding educational opportunities for optometrists, opticians, paraoptometrists, and technicians certified under JCAHPO, NCLE, ABO, and the American Optometric Association, as well as front-office, administrative, and business staff.
