Scandic Helsinki Aviacongress
Robert Huberin tie 4
Friday 11 October 2019
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, 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.
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.
Free membership of the Green Club gives you the following benefits to keep on learning:
All eye care professionals are welcome to become a member the Green Club – whether or not you work for Specsavers.
