The contact lens manufacturer has signed up to exhibit at the optical trade show, which will be held at ExCeL in London on 24–26 February. As well as having a stand presence, Alcon will deliver a range of CPD across the three-day show.

As a sponsor of the Future Practice Hub, Alcon will run nine CPD sessions from the hub, covering topics including the importance of comfort.

Commenting on the news, Jason Klomp, Alcon vision care country franchise head for the UK and Ireland, told OT: “We’re very much looking forward to engaging with a broad audience from all corners and roles within the nation’s optical practices, and having lots of practical conversations about the reality of fitting contact lenses.” 

He explained: “With a strong focus on contact lens education, Alcon is delighted to be part of this year’s 100% Optical where we will present 10 CPD sessions, nine under the Future Practice banner as well as a Main Stage presentation to speak about the importance of comfort from our water surface lenses and more. We look forward to this opportunity to share our science and meet our customers.”

Commenting on the news, Dr Ian Beasley, AOP head of education and OT clinical editor, said: “As the event’s official UK partner, the AOP is pleased to welcome Alcon to 100% Optical for the first time and work together to expand the education offering in the contact lens space for the benefit of practitioners, and ultimately, their patients.”
