Optometry Australia’s annual national conference and product showcase, Optometry Virtually Connected, will take place Friday 17 – Sunday 19 June 2022 and registrations are now open 

Optometry Virtually Connected is the largest virtual optometric conference in the Southern Hemisphere bringing together leading educators and a product showcase which together provide delegates with access to the latest clinical and patient management practices and equipment. 

Completely free for members, our virtual conference is back by popular demand. Created by optometrists for optometrists, the 2022 event brings together leading national and international educators to deliver over 30 hours of quality live and on-demand education with a program including everything from anterior eye to neuro-optometry. 

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr Noel Brennan, a preeminent academic in contact lenses and myopia. He’ll present alongside a quality line up of Australian and international speakers including Dr Jim Thimons, Dr Alex Hui and Associate Professor Laura Downie. More details on the program and speakers can be found on the event platform. 

Attending is an ideal way to super-charge your CPD learning requirements over one weekend – and without the need to leave your practice or home. 


Registration for members is free while non-members will be required to pay a $395 registration fee.

As an Optometry Australia member, there are no costs involved. No attendance fees. No travel costs or accommodation to pay. This leaves more in your pocket to do the things in life that you like to do. It also helps to reduce our collective environmental footprint.
