About Optometry

Optometrists are primary health care providers, being the first point of professional contact for people experiencing problems with their eyes or have difficulty seeing. Optometrists have a unique role in providing accessible and vital eye care to the community.

Optometrists are experts in: the optics of lenses, eye health and visual performance. They assess, diagnose and manage ocular diseases, injuries and disorders across a wide range of patients. Where clinically necessary, optometrists prescribe spectacles, contact lenses and devices for the visually impaired.

Optometrists are registered health professionals. In order to practise optometry a university degree in optometry must be undertaken and optometrists must be registered by the Malaysian Optical Council.
