Orthoptics Awareness Week (OAW) is an important event in the Orthoptics Australia calendar each year. This year it will be held from Monday the 5th to Friday the 9th of March 2018.
This year the theme is ‘Discover the Depths of Orthoptics’. The aim of this week is to increase the awareness of orthoptics to the public as well as other health professionals. We want to highlight the fact orthoptists are multi skilled in their roles and help manage a range of eye conditions including macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataract and strabismus and amblyopia.
