New AOP webinar series for optical teams

Four webinars for the whole practice team

Johnson & Johnson Vision logoThe Association of Optometrists (AOP) is launching a new webinar series, in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision, aimed at upskilling the practice team in key areas.

The series of four webinars is designed to fulfil a spectrum of training needs, covering the most common issues and challenges faced by dispensing opticians, optical assistants and frontline workers across optical teams.

Speaking about the series, AOP Head of Education, Dr Ian Beasley, said: “These new additions to the AOP education programme are designed to enable the whole optical practice team to flourish and grow their skill set, which is why we’ve made them open to AOP members and non-members.

“Each webinar looks at a specific aspect of working in practice – from dilemmas sometimes faced as a frontline team member, dispensing, visual fields and OCT, to contact lens recruitment and retention.”  

The webinars, which are free to attend, will take place in June and July 2021. For more information and to register visit
