Infection control is an integral part of every optometry practice.  We have collated resources to help strengthen your understanding of infection control and improve patient care.  This page includes:


  • Optometry Australia’s practical guidelines for the latest information on best-practice infection control
  • Videos and Checklists for optometrists, practices and organisations
  • CPD hours claimable through Optometry Australia’s Institute of Excellence to help improve your infection control

It is our goal that optometrists, staff and businesses have the knowledge and skills to provide best-practice infection control for individual and community safety.
