History of ForOptom
ForOptom was founded in May 2019 by three Young Optometrists of Nepal with the aim of upgrading Optometry Practice in Nepal.
The idea of ForOptom came into existence as the current trend in Optometry practice in our country has mostly been limited to refraction. Although being a vast field and many specializations we must admit that we are lagging behind many of this specialized Optometry practice. Vision Therapy, Contact lenses, Ocular prosthesis and low vision are one of the major important and emerging fields of Optometry in Nepal.
With an increasing number of Optometrist, these fields are also gaining much interest these days but due to lack of adequate knowledge and awareness, many professionals are hesitant to practice these specializations.
At this growing age of Optometry as a profession, ForOptom will not only help to boost the confidence and impart the knowledge in the professionals about Optometry Specialty Services but also serve as a common platform for many eye care professionals to unite, connect and discuss the current trend and practice in today’s eye health.
