Eye Post #12: What Does "RO" Mean?


Desiree Law, B.Sc, RO

Some people have asked me what RO stands for. RO is the designation of a "Registered Optician".

Opticians are regulated by the College of Opticians of Ontario (COO), one of 21 health Colleges established by the law. COO is responsible for ensuring that the optical services provided by licensed opticians to the public of Ontario are safe, ethical, and high quality care.


Aside from schooling and minimum 1000 co-op hours, opticians are required to pass a three day national licensing exam to ensure that they are capable and knowledgeable to provide all the services required of an optician for eyeglasses and contact lenses. Some of the skills tested include frame adjustment and measurements, inserting/removing contact lenses for a patient, determining an unknown prescription from a pair of glasses, etc.

When COO has recognized that you have completed all the schooling requirements and have successfully passed the licensing exam, they will grant you the designation of RO.


I hope that this has helped you understand my career in the optical industry! :)

Until next time, Des

Rodial Date Night Look

I do like getting dolled up for a date night with C every once in a while, and I decided to go with this makeup look using some of the latest Rodial releases. I would describe this look as polished and pretty.

Life Lately - Food Edition (Apr '17)

The past few months was all about food!



I walked by this little bake shop one afternoon and I regret not going in. A couple weeks later I was back downtown and this time I made sure to stop by Nugateau. Nugateau specializes in eclairs in an assortment of flavours, from coffee to salted caramel, apple to pistachio, and a whole lot more. Not only is the shop beautiful and minimal in aesthetics, the eclairs themselves are beautiful too! You can taste the unique flavour of each eclair without it being overwhelmingly sweet. It's a luxury snack to indulge but once in a while you just crave that perfect eclair. I don't know any other place that can make eclairs as good as Nugateau.
