Topic outline

  • Description

    The lasting impact of OCULUS will be widening scope of practice in India and in Israel. To this end a Work team comprised of representatives from ECOO, ICO, Israeli HEI and programme country HEI will lobby key stakeholders at the Ministry of Health in Israel to broaden the scope of optometric practice. Best practices in Europe (England, Norway, Netherlands) will be presented as examples as well as a report on how optometry positively impacts public health in those regions.

    A similar team (ECOO, ASCO, Indian HEI and programme country HEIs) will lobby the Indian Ministry of Health as well as submit an updated curriculum for minimum standards of optometric education in India.
