Eye Health

I have recently completed a post-graduate diploma course in ocular therapeutics through the University of NSW which will enable me to prescribe medications for the eye, including those listed on the PBS. This aspect of optometry’s role in primary eye care is the final piece of the picture which makes up the scope of our profession. We have certainly come a long way from our humble origins as an offshoot of jewellery and frame making.
