The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of COVID-19, a disease caused by a novel strain of coronavirus, a pandemic on 11 March 2020. ECOO is closely monitoring developments and acknowledges that responses to the pandemic vary between EU countries. The situation for optical and optometric professionals and their customers/patients therefore varies across Europe […]
At least a third of people over the age of 65 years report falling at least once per year, with about half of these people reporting multiple falls. These guidelines provide recommendations for Optometrists and Opticians regarding how to best manage their older patients to minimise the risk of falls.
ECOO is delighted to announce the publication of its third edition of the Blue Book, a valuable aggregation of data on the professions of optometry and optics in countries across Europe.
It is the only publicly available compilation of data that offers a comparative and comprehensive view on these two professional groups across 30 countries. Information is gathered through surveys filled in by ECOO members and partners.
