Menicon launches new facility with CET event

The contact lens company’s Northampton site has been expanded to include more office and training space

Menicon launches new facility with CET event

Menicon hosted a free CET event for 23 members of the Northampton Local Optical Committee at its newly launched training facility on 23 May.

The event featured lectures and peer discussions worth 6 CET points in total, covering topics including the anterior eye, the visual recognition test and irregular corneas.

Menicon expanded its Northampton site this year with more offices and training facilities for practitioners, where it will launch contact lens products and host CET events.

Professional services manager at Menicon, Josie Barlow, explained: “The aim of the new facility is to provide future CET events covering a wide range of topics and skills, increase the confidence of practitioners in fitting RGP contact lenses and to provide training specific for our specialist lenses, for example our Rose K range and Menicon Z Night ortho-k contact lenses.”   

“We will also use it as a platform for launching future products, such as our new scleral lens later this year,” she added.
