Optometry Australia’s member magazine, Optometry Connection

Optometry Connection reflects Optometry Australia’s strategic imperative to continue to evolve and adapt within a fast-changing world. From technological advances in the detection and treatment of ocular pathologies to selected case reports and clinical studies that advance the provision of primary eye care, Optometry Connection represents a new era in delivering quality content that meets contemporary education standards; its aim is to support optometrists in their day-to-day patient and clinical care decision making while adequately representing the full scope of practice in contemporary optometry.

The print issues of Optometry Connection are distributed exclusively to members of Optometry Australia five times per year. With the exception of the inaugural issue (published this year to coincide with the changes to CPD occurring in Australia) the magazine will be published in March, May, July and November of each year, with a special issue published in September on a dedicated topic.


Optometry Connection magazine will credit each Optometry Australia member with up to 4 hours of CPD per each issue.
