Our registration fees for 2016/17 have increased by £10. These are now £320 for fully qualified registrants and businesses. Fees for students have been frozen at £25. There is a £100 discount for anybody earning £12,000 or less per year.
Inflation is naturally part of the reason for the increase, but it is also due to a commitment to longer-term planning to ensure ongoing financial stability. For full details of the fees, please visit our website.
We are consulting on a new policy looking at how we handle concerns raised by workers in the optical sector which may raise public interest or patient safety concerns.
The consultation will run until 21 January 2016. We encourage all registrants to respond by filling out a short survey at: https://www.optical.org/en/get-involved/consultations/index.cfm
