what is the role of the nova scotia college of dispensing opticians?
The Nova Scotia College of Dispensing Opticians is a regulatory body. The College regulates the practice of Opticianry by ensuring Registered Opticians are qualified and are consistently providing safe and ethical care to patients. The College is not a teaching institution.
The College has a duty to serve and protect the public interest by overseeing the conduct and competence of Registered Opticians in Nova Scotia. The College also sets and enforces practice standards and responds to complaints if standards are not being met.
