The Association of Dispensing Opticians of New Zealand (ADONZ)

Was formed in 1952 when the first official meeting was held in Palmerston North. Throughout the history of Dispensing Optics in New Zealand, the ADONZ has been instrumental in every new regulation and in the education of Dispensing Opticians.

Dispensing Opticians are registered with the Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians Board. They are qualified health care providers and complete continuing education in order to maintain an Annual Practising Certificate.
