The Advanced Certificate in Glaucoma (ACO-ACG) offers optometrists training in current best practice for the pathophysiology, diagnosis and co-management of glaucoma.
Graduates completing this course will have enhanced knowledge of glaucoma and improved ability to participate in collaborative care with ophthalmologists. This six month course offers a flexible remote learning structure ideal for rural or remote optometrists and those balancing work and other commitments.
Candidates must be an optometry graduate and be registered as an optometrist in Australia or New Zealand. However, course enquiries from international applicants or optometrists with limited registration should be directed to the ACO (firstname.lastname@example.org).
It is recommended that candidates have a minimum of six months general practice experience prior to commencing this course.
