Optical Confederation opens consultation on refractive surgery

The Optical Confederation has launched a consultation on multi-disciplinary professional standards for refractive surgery providers.

The Optical Confederation is seeking responses from the public, patients, clinicians and providers to help shape the new standards that will determine the way eye surgery to correct vision errors is delivered in the UK in the best interests of patients.

The consultation will include patient focus groups (London and Scotland) and an industry consultation event as part of the education programme on Monday 3 April at Optrafair.

You can find out more about the consultation, including downloading copies of the draft standards at the Optical Confederation’s website.

Deadline for responses is Friday 7 April 2017.
