Optegra Eye Health Care has established a series of regional roadshows which aim to explore the future of eye care. 

To be hosted across the UK in September and October, the events will be held at its private eye hospitals and have been designed to reach out to local optometrists, ophthalmologists and GPs. 

The roadshows will feature guest speaker Dr Patrick Dixon, chairman of trends and forecasting company Global Change Ltd. 

During the events, delegates will be given an overview of Optegra’s facilities and expertise, as well as an insight into the patient’s perspective. Senior advisor from Fight for Sight Julian Jackson, will also be present to talk about his experience of living with sight loss and the research which is currently being funded in collaboration between Optegra and Fight for Sight. 

Managing director of Optegra UK, Rory Passmore, said: “We hope this roadshow will give us an opportunity to bring together a variety of industry professionals in each of the regions where we have Optegra hospitals. It promises to be an interesting and thought-provoking evening as we hear from eye health experts and individuals who are living with sight loss; and of course debate the future of eye health – from changes in management with some provocative scenarios to contemplate.”
