Career Specialisation for Optometry

Hi all,

I'm wondering if it's possible to specialise in neuro-opthalmics after finishing my degree? If so, how do I do it? Is this possible in Aus or is this just in the US? I read an article about Dr Kelly Malloy (links posted below) who specialised in this field after training as an optometrist in the US and I'm wondering if I can undertake similar training here that would allow me to specialise.

I'm studying at Optometry at QUT at the moment and the specialist clinics doesn't seem to include this. I am aware that UMelb offers a specialist cert in neuro-opthalmology online (also linked below), but the course doesn't seem to include how to treat such diseases.

To treat such diseases I think you need to be a Neuro-Opthalmologist, which requires a medicine degree plus years of specialist training.
