The Federation of (Ophthalmic and Dispensing) Opticians is a leading professional membership and insurance organisation that represents primary care eye health providers in the UK and Ireland and offers bespoke and targeted advice to our diverse business and individual membership.
We represent the interests of opticians, optometrists and other optical professionals and businesses at the highest level of national policy debate.
Free eye examinations are to continue in Scotland, with a review of community optometry services to make further improvements, Health Secretary Shona Robison announced last week.
A study commissioned by the College of Optometrists has found that, when comparing spectacles bought online and those bought and fitted in optometric practices, customers preferred shop bought spectacles.
MP Sir Roger Gale visited his local opticians earlier this month to find out why regular eye tests are important in preventing avoidable sight loss, and to hear from the Kent and Medway Local Optical Committee (LOC) about the community eye care services available in optical practices across Kent.
The results are in for the College of Optometrists’ latest OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination).
The addition of the WESC Foundation marks an exciting step for VISION 2020 UK as it expands its portfolio of membership organisations.
