The Focus On Australia Campaign was created to capture the Covid-19-induced sentiment for local family businesses and Australian made products. Togetherness in social distancing became more precious than ever. This is why CR Surfacing aims to elevate this campaign to the next level, and create a community of independent optometry practices, where we share the same values, where members feel secure and supported. Provided a platform, where they can share their knowledge and learn from each other. Where it’s our exact independence and individuality that unites us.
