Ask an expert

The College is the professional body for optometrists in the UK. If you are in the UK and would like to ask one of our expert optometrists a question please fill in the box below and we will reply as soon as we can. Please note that although we can answer general queries, as we have not examined your eyes we are unable to answer queries about your own particular eye condition. If you have a query about your own eye condition we recommend that you ask the optometrist who has examined you.

When you submit this form, we will use your contact details and any other information provided to reply to you to the best of our abilities. If you are not an optometrist, your data will not pass outside of the College. If you are an optometrist we may update your record if your details have changed and use them for membership purposes – see our privacy policy. We may retain your information in an anonymised format for statistical use.

If you would like to ask one of our expert optometrists a question please fill in the box below and we will reply as soon as we can. Our office hours are from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
