IAPB celebrated optometrists during the week of International Optometry Day. We sometimes forget that optometrists are called upon in times of crisis, often placed on the front-line and always only too happy to step-up to the task at hand. Do check out some inspirational stories from our members and stakeholders – and remember that when all is said and done we are living through a public health crisis and more often than not optometrists are at the forefront of global efforts to strengthen health system.

GA Ambassador, Dr Duratul Ain Hussin shares Malaysian hospital pics where staff, including optometrists are optimising resources by creating DIY PPE boots and face shields.
