Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO)


The Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) is the national voice of optometry in Canada, representing 85% of doctors of optometry (ODs). Founded in 1941 and formally incorporated in 1948, the CAO works with its 10 provincial member associations within a federated framework.

The CAO is dedicated to collaboratively advancing the highest standard of primary eye care through the promotion of optimal vision and eye health, in partnership with all Canadians.

Doctors of Optometry are independent primary health care providers and represent the front line of vision health. The eye health and good vision of the public are the prime responsibilities of Canada’s Doctors of Optometry.

COHM Inc. and the CAO partnered together to help optometrists across Canada receive On Hold Marketing services at reduced rate with first-class support. Over the years, it has become evident that due to high call volumes that optometrists experience, our service is becoming a necessity for many businesses.

By using our on hold services for optometrists, clients are presented with a professional narration about their business. It also educates their clients about eye care, seasonal promotions, services, and much more. Optometrists start by personalizing their On Hold message by selecting their talent, music background, and customize their own information with the support of our script writers. We are very proud to say that we specialize in optometrist On Hold Marketing, and can be a big support to many businesses across Canada. With the right audio image, we can help make that first impression professional, powerful and memorable.
