Advancing optometry – and careers – at 100%

Almost 2500 CET points were earned by optical practitioners from across the sector on the Specsavers stand at 100% Optical in London from 25 to 27 January.

Giving delegates an insight into the range and quality of professional development on offer for Specsavers colleagues, the programme featured discussion workshops and peer review sessions on visual fields analysis and interpretation, common cases in anterior eye, recall scenarios, patient-centred care and OCT.

Gill Robinson, director of professional training and development, said: ‘Case-based learning is a very valuable way of clinical development. Delegates were enthusiastic and participated really well in all the sessions. We received some great feedback throughout the event.’

Leading and facilitating the sessions over the three days were Magda Everett, Dr Josie Forte, Judy Lea, Will Lok, Hayley Moore, Paul Morris, Kiki Soteri and Adam Wannell.
