Together for better eye care

This year’s Clinical Conference will focus on making better eye care accessible to the many. An ambitious aim that we can only achieve by working together with all optometrists, opticians, optical dispensers (only for Specsavers employees), ophthalmologists, eye doctors, and the like. If we keep on learning, share our knowledge and improve our skills, we can take steps in reducing avoidable blindness and make a real difference in eye health – together.

You are very welcome at our Clinical Conference 2019 – with a full-day programme to learn skills, approaches and techniques to solve common clinical challenges, as well as communication skills that will help you in your day-to-day contact with customers or patients. A conference won’t be a conference without meeting your peers, so there will be plenty of time to chat and share experiences. And, last but not least: you can earn CET points while you’re at it.

Green Club

As there will be an increased pressure on the healthcare industry, the optometrist of the future needs to work closer with both general physicians and eye doctors. That means more enhanced optical services will be available in optical stores and that the optometrist will play an even more crucial role in eye health. At Green Club, we believe that keeping your knowledge up-to-date is vital in this ever-changing industry and will become even more important in the future. Therefore, we provide you with the tools to prepare yourself for the future, keep on learning and refresh your knowledge in an easy and professional way.
