Welcome to Optometry Victoria South Australia

Optometry Australia delivers a host of fantastic services and benefits to members Australia-wide. We complement and expand on this, taking support of individual members to a whole new level.

At Optometry Vic/SA we take the time to listen to members by visiting practices, speaking to members at local CPD and social events, or by picking up the phone. By getting to know your individual needs and aspirations, we are well placed to utilise both national and state resources and expertise to provide you with the information, support, advice and events you need at a time and place that best suits you.

Optometry Victoria South Australia hosts O=MEGA the largest optometric conference in the Southern Hemisphere, which is held biennially. This is complemented by the SA Blue Sky Congress, held in the alternate year to O=MEGA.

These events are supported by a comprehensive program of locally delivered CPD events from one-day CPD events to evening CPD seminars held in regional and metropolitan locations across the two states, as well as social get-togethers. In addition, seminars specifically targeted to early career optometrists aim to meet the unique needs of these members.

At a local level, each state organisation operates differently in line with state-specific government legislation. This results in a variety of local opportunities and risks for optometrists that we respond to through our concerted advocacy work.

While each state is committed to delivering a shared, national strategic plan for optometry, we are also committed to local initiatives which are driven by our members through their participation on our Board, our committees and via all forms of feedback.

We also provide additional state-specific benefits specifically designed for you including conferences, face-to-face CPD, publications and events and practice and professional support.
