It changed its title to the Australasian Journal of Optometry in January 1930. At the time it was edited and published from the NSW State Association. It continues as Clinical and Experimental Optometry (from 1986) published by the National Office of the Association since 1978 and reached its 100th year of continuing publication in 2018.
