OBA States Optoms Not Specialists

Under the National Law there is no specialist registration for optometry and the title ‘specialist’ is restricted. In its July communique, OBA stated, “It is therefore unlawful for optometrists to call themselves specialists or imply that they are specialists in their advertising. The specialist titles recognised under the National Law only relate to medical, dental or podiatric specialists”.

Registered optometrists can use the title ‘optometrist’ and list credentials and recognised qualifications in advertising. Additionally, an optometrist could reasonably say they have an ‘interest’, ‘experience’ or ‘predominantly practise’ in an area of practice.
