Scandinavian Orthoptic Association

Welcome to the Scandinavian Orthoptic Association - SOA  

SOA is an umbrella organisation for the three Scandinavian orthoptic societies: 

The Danish Orthoptic Society - Dansk Medicinsk Ortoptisk Forening (DMOF)

The Norwegian Orthoptic Society - Norske Ortoptisters Forening (NOF)

The Swedish Orthoptic Society - Sveriges Ideella Ortoptistförening (SIOF)

Finland and Iceland are observing members.

The three societies each have a representative in OCE

SOA is a member of IOA – the International Orthoptic Association   

Working prospects in Scandinavia are looking very positive over the next 10 years; if you are interested in work please contact the respective country’s society. 


Orthoptic training in Europe is a 3 to 4 year university education depending on the country. For more information please look at the IOA link. It may be possible to apply for a grant or a loan but you will need to contact your local authority.

The Scandinavian Orthoptic Association (SOA) was founded in 1982. The committee is made up of one representative each from Denmark, Norway and Sweden, plus our International Orthoptic Association (IOA) representative. Finland has an observing member. 

Orthoptists in Scandinavia work either for the national health service, or in private practice.

They may work in cooperation with ophthalmologists, or independently in their own clinics.

The orthoptists examine, diagnose and treat children with amblyopia (reduced/under stimulated vision), as well as children and adults with visual problems due to latent squint or neurological disorders. Some orthoptists provide assistance during squint surgery, and orthoptists are also involved in research.

SOA’s objective is:

-       to protect and promote the education of orthoptists

-       to organise opportunities for scientific and clinical professional development, and make this available to its members.

-       to monitor the advertisement and recruitment process for orthoptic posts advertised in Scandinavia

-       to ensure positive collaboration between all those involved in the discipline of orthoptics.

-       to arrange a Scandinavian Orthoptic Congress every other year.
