Optom Academy presents at Optrafair!

April saw Optom Academy present at Optrafair at the CET stream sponsored by Haag Streit. There were over 200 people that attended our training session on ‘See more with your slit lamp’. This included practical demonstrations of techniques coupled with theory. The feedback was fantastic from delegates, with many saying it they had learnt things which they were unaware of before.

If you would like to use Optom Academy to present then please do not hesitate in getting in touch with us. We are happy to present at LOC events, CET events and pre-registration programmes!
