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.

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.
