Optometry 2040 Project Workshops: Members

Event Information




Event description


Help shape the future of optometry

Optometry 2040 is an initiative, led by Optometry Australia, which aims to identify likely and preferred futures for optometry, optometrists, and community eye health over the next 20 years. It seeks to respond to concerns that the future is looking more uncertain for many in the sector, arisen due to on-going turbulence resulting from technological, economic, political and demographic change.

As a key influencer in our sector, Optometry Australia would be delighted if you could join us for one of our Optometry 2040 workshops. These innovative workshops will use proven techniques that enable participants to identify what is needed to ensure the preferred futures that we seek for optometry become a reality.

The outcomes of all workshops will feed into the creation of a multi-decade strategy that will become the blueprint for a progressive Australian optometry sector.
