ADVOCATING ON BEHALF OF EYE HEALTH PRACTITIONERS TO ENSURE A REGULATED ENVIRONMENT
WHERE THE PUBLIC IS PROTECTED AND THE PROFESSION PROSPERS
The Canadian Society of Eye Health Practitioners was established as an alternate voice for Opticians in Ontario. Secondary to that role, we strive to foster harmony between the various members of the ophthalmic community including Opticians, Optometrists and Ophthalmologists. Through collaboration of all our partners in the ophthalmic community, we have tackled common issues such as illegal refracting, illegal dispensing and the proliferation of Internet eyeglass and contact lens sales more effectively.
