Strengthening referral pathways

Optometry Australia continues to foster awareness and understanding among Australia’s GPs and pharmacists about the role of optometry and the need to strengthen referral pathways to optometrists.

In recent years we have run consecutive highly targeted campaigns, aimed at making GPs, pharmacists and pharmacy assistants more aware of eye symptoms which require referral to an optometrist.
