The Optometrists & Opticians Act (the “Act”) was passed in Parliament in July 2007 to regulate the practice of Optometry and Opticianry in Singapore. The purpose of regulation is to ensure that those who provide eye care services are properly trained and qualified. The Act establishes the Optometrists and Opticians Board (the "Board") to regulate optometrists and opticians.

All optometrists and opticians providing eye care services will need to be registered with the Optometrists & Opticians Board to continue practising or to start working as an optician or optometrist from 1 Jan 2008.

Under the Act, it is an offence to practise Optometry or Opticianry without a valid registration certificate and/or practising certificate.

All registered practitioners with the Board are required to be familiar with the act, its subsidiary legislations as well as the code of practice and guidelines. Please click here for more information.
