We want to recognise you

We enjoy recognising, honouring and celebrating the success of our members.

We offer a selection of awards to optometrists, at a national and state level, which acknowledge their outstanding work.

We also celebrate our members who receive external acclaim, such as those who receive the Order of Australia, which is the principal means of recognising outstanding members of the community at a national level.
