Optometry Australia’s policy team has reviewed and updated clinical practice guides and advice to members to ensure information is current.

Optometry Australia’s Acting CEO Kirsty Machon says the review process is an important part of making sure the organisation is providing relevant and correct information.

‘Nothing major has changed in any of these documents but they have been improved for clarity and consistency, and to make sure the key points are highlighted while keeping advice practical and brief.

‘This is a good opportunity for members to check our advice on clinical practice and on practical matters to be sure they have all the latest updates,’ she said.

Members can download the updated guides and advice from the Optometry Australia website.
