Requirements for Approved Qualifications for Contact Lens Opticians



In March 2022, our Council approved new education and training requirements for GOC approved qualifications for contact lens opticians. The new requirements consist of:

  • Outcomes for Approved Qualifications
  • Standards for Approved Qualifications
  • Quality Assurance and Enhancement Method


August 2022

We are currently in the process of creating the necessary forms and documents to support providers in gaining approval or adapting to the new qualifications for contact lens opticians. These will be added once they have been finalised.
