OOB Decals & Optical Services Survey

The OOB has modified the practicing certificates (PC) for all registered optometrists. PCs for optometrists are now printed in pink, while PCs for opticians remain as green.

The main objective for this differentiation is to enable the public to identify optometrists vis-à-vis opticians more clearly. This will help consumers to be more aware of the different roles played by the two different groups of professionals. 

OOB Decals

In conjunction with the differentiation of the PCs, the Board would also be issuing decals to all shops and outlets with registered optometrists and/or opticians. The decals will help to increase public awareness of the two different groups of practitioners as well as the additional services that optometrists may provide beyond refraction and selling of spectacles, such as contact lens services and eye screening.

More information on the scopes of practice is available at the Board’s website.


Optical Service Survey

Optical retail shops/outlets are also invited to provide information on optical services available at the practice by participating in a short online survey.  The information received would be made available to the public on the Board’s website. Such information would be useful for consumers, patients and institutions who seek various types of eye care services.

Please note that only one response is required per shop or outlet.  The survey would be opened until 28 February 2017.  Periodic updates would also be made available based on updates by shops and outlets after the date.

Please contact the Board’s secretariat should you require any clarifications.
