We want Optometric Council...

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Optometry - the noble profession that serves the primary eye care needs of the society - is being denied the atmosphere of true professional development because:

1. ALTHOUGH THE DISCIPLINE WAS INTRODUCED WAY BACK IN THE YEAR 1958, NO GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION HAS SO FAR BEEN INTRODUCED TO REGULATE ITS PRACTICE AND EDUCATION.

2. PEOPLE SUFFER AS EYE CARE SERVICES, MAINLY REFRACTION AND DISPENSING OF EYEWEAR CONTINUE TO BE PROVIDED BY NON-INSTITUTIONALLY-QUALIFIED PERSONS.

And, the solution is simple, i.e., the formation of an Optometric Council!
