SOS! Nobody knows who we are!
The Student Orthoptic Society (SOS) currently consists of students from the Orthoptics faculty within La Trobe University. The role of an Orthoptist is often confused with feet, optometry and bone surgery. The purpose of this society is to ensure that this no longer happens! We are aiming to network students across all years to enhance social welfare, provide academic support and establish future professional contacts.
Although our focus is on the Annual Eye Ball, this year we will be holding a number of exciting events & also promoting Orthoptics-related events from outside the university.
We openly welcome and encourage Orthoptics students, along with those with a keen interest in the health care industry, to join, learn and raise awareness about the remarkable work of an Orthoptist.
For more information about our profession, and to answer the common question of What is an Orthoptist?, check out this amazing video created by our 2016 President, Han Nguyen. Han's video won the "World Orthoptic Day 2017 Video Competition" at the 2016 Orthoptics Australia 73rd Annual Scientific Conference in Melbourne! Congratulations Han!
