Collaborative Optometric/Ophthalmological Task Force

The Collaborative Optometric/Ophthalmological Task Force was created in 2017. The Task Force is composed of 4 members, one representative of a statewide organization representing optometry; one representative of a statewide organization representing ophthalmology; one representative of a statewide organization representing physicians licensed to practice medicine in all of its branches; and one representative of an accredited, private 4-year school of optometry located in a city in Illinois with a population of more than 1,500,000 persons. The Task force is tasked with collaboratively developing minimum educational requirements for an optometrist to perform advanced optometric procedures.
