Optos on the road

The equipment supplier will visit five cities to highlight how ultra-widefield imaging technology can benefit practitioners

Optos roadshow

Optos has planned a five-stop roadshow across the UK to explain the business benefits of ultra-widefield imaging technology to independent optometrists.

The roadshows will offer three interactive CET points, and will take place in Edinburgh, Leeds and Birmingham on February 26, 27 and 28 respectively, and then Bristol and London on 5 and 6 March respectively.

Industry leaders will explain business development opportunities and diagnostic capabilities of the technology, during lectures and peer review sessions. 

Practitioners will give an overview of how the clinical technology has helped them establish an optometry business.

Speaking at the event is co-owner and practice manager at Hammond & Dummer in Milton Keynes, Dr Bob Ranger, who will explain the journey he and his wife took in purchasing and developing their practice. 

“My presentation won’t be the ‘we have all the answers’ chat but a warts-and-all account of a huge leap forward in the practice of optometry and retail sales,” he shared.  

“I hope to mitigate the unfounded but understandable trepidation many optometrists and practice managers feel faced with impending investment and change,” Dr Ranger added. 

Other speakers include optometrists Brad Abrahams, Ian Cameron, Morven Campbell, Faye McDearmid and Brian Tompkins. 

Optos explained that the events are designed for optometrists who want to learn more about ultra-widefield before introducing the technology, as well as those considering additional investment.
