The register

We hold registers for optometrists, dispensing opticians, student optometrists and dispensing opticians, specialty practitioners and bodies corporate.

The registers are publicly available to search online.

Before joining the registers, all optometrists and dispensing opticians, including students, are required to have completed, or currently be studying for, a GOC-approved training course. They must meet certain standards of education and performance, and comply with our standards of practice.

Registrants have to provide us with a health declaration, and details of any criminal convictions, cautions or investigations, or disciplinary proceedings which have been taken against them or are currently pending. Full registrants must also hold professional indemnity insurance and show that they have completed the minimum required amount of Continuing Education and Training (CET).
