Standards of Practice

Optometric Practice Reference

The Optometric Practice Reference (OPR) articulates the current regulatory and professional standards of practice for optometry in Ontario and provides voluntary guidelines for practitioners wishing to go beyond the basic requirements. The OPR replaces the Guide to the Practice of Optometry (2000) and all previous versions of the Guide.

The OPR is a valuable reference for members of the College and is also intended to be a resource for patients, College Committees and the general public. As a living document, it will be updated and new documents will be added on a regular basis.
