Our varied programmes reflects both the diversity of optometry programmes and the high level of inter-disciplinarity that characterises vision research
Conference activities include talks, poster presentations, practical workshops and demonstration sessions, along with social gatherings over drinks on Thursday and the conference dinner on Friday. Our varied programme reflects both the diversity of optometry programmes and the high level of inter-disciplinarity that characterises vision research.
Our workshops in particular emphasise cultural competency in the training of Optometrists, and our use of technology for ocular imaging, assessment of visual function, and treatment of dry eye disease.
