The General Optical Council (GOC) has been named as a new member of Vision 2020, a charity which brings together organisations from across the eye health and sight loss sectors.

Vision 2020 has said that the regulator joining its membership “marks an exciting step forward” and builds on its existing membership of charities, professional bodies and voluntary organisations.

CEO of Vision 2020 UK, Mercy Jeyasingham, said: “We are delighted to confirm the GOC as the newest Vision 2020 UK member. The membership of the GOC is a vote of confidence in the value provided by Vision 2020 UK to our members, and we anticipate a strong, fulfilling working relationship in the coming years, to help the GOC achieve all of its organisational objectives.”

Director of strategy at the GOC, Alistair Bridge, added: “Our membership of Vision 2020 UK will allow us to work collaboratively with other members, and with Vision 2020 UK itself, to engage even more effectively with patients and the public.

“The GOC is committed to collaborative working, and we really look forward to making the most of the opportunities presented as members of Vision 2020 UK, such as involvement in the organisation’s Special Interest Groups, and working with other members to ensure that we fulfil our core functions to an even higher standard.”
