Bookings are now open for the College of Optometrists’ fourth Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize conference which will take place in Wembley, London on Sunday 18 September.
Including some of the most well-received lectures, peer discussions and workshops from the College of Optometrists’ two-day annual conference, Optometry Tomorrow, which was hosted in Birmingham in March this year, Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize will give delegates the opportunity to earn up to nine interactive CET points in a single day.
The conference programme includes five lectures and will include content from Dr Lisa O’Donoghue on the topic of myopia in children and Mr Leon Au on advances in glaucoma. It will also include workshops on the topic of low vision, OCT and gonioscopy and peer discussion sessions that will allow delegates to discuss case studies.
College President, Mary-Ann Sherratt, said: “Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize is a great opportunity to access much of the great content and highlights from the larger conference in a condensed way.
“This is a chance for those who couldn’t make it to Optometry Tomorrow 2016 to participate in a range of interactive CET sessions, and experience first-hand the high-quality professional development the College’s annual conference offers.”
Stephanie Bentley, a delegate at Optometry Tomorrow 2016 said: “This year’s Optometry Tomorrow has been the best conference I have been to in a long time. The quality and content of the lectures has been fantastic.”
Tickets are just £60 for College members (£50 for those who qualified from July 2012), and £40 for students or pre-registration trainees. Workshop tickets are available at £30 each and are open to all fully-qualified optometrists who are members of the College.
Bookings are now open and tickets can be obtained from the Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize website. Places are limited so those wishing to attend must book soon to avoid disappointment. A non-member rate is also available.
