The Ophthalmic Practitioners' Group represents the UK's Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians and aims to reform the profession to reflect high standards of public care.
This group was formed in response to the commercial led proposal for an Optometry Degree Apprenticeship. We recognised that many optical professionals had concerns that were not being addressed and we sought to become a voice for them. No one person is responsible for our organisation and each member has played their own part in our decisions.
1. To promote and protect the profession, it's reputation and the public that it serves.
2. To be transparent at all times with our members.
3. To be a voice for the profession and to never be misrepresented by corporate interests.
