REGISTRATION

The registration of opticians began in Victoria in 1935. Unregistered people were prevented from practising optometry from this time. A register of registered opticians appeared in May 1936 in the Victorian Government Gazette and lists of registered opticians appeared annually in January in the Victorian Government Gazette from this time; these were either a full register or a supplementary list. Legally opticians were relabelled optometrists in 1975. See Government Gazettes.
