The College of Opticians of Ontario (COO) has been receiving requests from the public for help in finding opticians who are providing essential services. In response to this, the COO is building a directory on their website listing opticians who are available to provide essential services. Opticians are encouraged to, whenever possible, to provide these services remotely. When providing services this way, opticians must use their professional judgement. Providing essential services remotely will challenge opticians to be resourceful in order to do this safely. The COO update email on April 9th lists examples as to how opticians can practice under these circumstances. If you would like to be listed as a provider of essential services, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org . To view the full COO update, click here.
