Free CET Workshop in Liverpool worth 6 Interactive Points


Spaces are filling for our free Seeing Beyond the Eyes CET workshop in Liverpool on 21st November (6 – 8.30pm) so please book soon to secure your place.


‘Seeing Beyond the Eyes’ enables optical professionals to learn more about helping patients with sight loss, available support services and referral pathways and is really gaining momentum with over 900 professionals having attended our 17 workshops to date. Our findings show a staggering 96% of them will now refer to rehabilitation services, up from only 9% prior to the courses! Their increased awareness of services and products for people who are blind or partially sighted will greatly enhance the experience of patients and we are already hearing about new referrals.


The course is suitable for Ophthalmologists, Optoms, DOs, CLOs and students and is delivered by Jayshree Vasani, Peter Black and myself.


Our two-hour awareness course was designed for opticians and optometrists, but we have had great feedback from patients, rehabilitation workers, eye clinic liaison officers, ophthalmologists and ophthalmic nurses who attended…


“The best CET I have attended. Great presentation, relevant, and easy to immediately implement to make environmental changes in practice” (Optometrist registered since 2005)


“I didn’t know there was so much support and equipment available for patients with low vision, I am now going to call 25 patients tomorrow that I can help with information”


“This is the best CET session I’ve been to in this 3-year cycle. Interesting, relevant & full of great ideas for use in everyday practice, I will now purchase low vision aids to demonstrate to patients”
