Our next CET event will be held before our AGM* on 24th April at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, and the topic will be 'Demodex - here's what you need to know'. This is aproved for 1 interactive CET point for optometrists (ocular disease, standards of practice), contact lens opticians (ocular examination, contact lenses, standards of practice), dispensing opticians (ocular abnormalities, standards of practice) and therapeutic optometrists (knowledge, options, always improving). Sponsored by Thea Pharmaceuticals.

(*Although we would love you to stay on for the AGM after the CET, note that this isn't a requirement, and those who need to leave will be free to do so during a short 'comfort break'.)


On 5th June at Milton Keynes Hospital we'll have a contact lens peer discussion: 'Improving CL wearer compliance'. This event will fulfil the peer review requirement for optometrists and contact lens opticians. It is approved for 3 interactive CET points each for optometrists (contact lenses, communication), dispensing opticians (contact lenses, communication) and contact lens opticians (contact lenses, communication). Sponsored by Alcon.
