The work of Scope Ophthalmics has been recognised after it was awarded a Supplier of the Year accolade at the Optician Awards last month.

The prize acknowledges Scope’s “strong relationships with optical practitioners,” as well as its “dedication to customer service and quality of products and support.”

On receiving the award, Scope marketing director of UK and Ireland, Paul O’Reilly, said: “Receiving the Optician Award is a huge honour and recognition of Scope’s dedication, innovation and pioneering ethos. We look forward to continuing the excellent work we do with our optical partners over the next year with new products, advanced in-practice support and ground-breaking methods of commercial service delivery.”

The annual awards ceremony was held at the Birmingham Metropole on 31 March. Other winners on the evening included independent practice Hammond & Dummer Opticians, which won the Contact Lens Patient Engagement accolade and Albert Road Opticians which won Fashion Practice of the Year.

Recognising the work of individuals, Alisdair Buchanan received Optometrist of the Year and SeeAbility’s Ned Saunders was named Dispensing Optician of the Year.

The awards ceremony was presented by actress and comedian Debra Stephenson.
