Presenting the latest innovations for your contact lens practice.

Innovation in Practice is aimed at ophthalmic opticians, contact lens opticians and dispensing opticians to explore the current practice environment and how we can look to innovate. It will consider ideas and methods that can be implemented in practice to enhance the patients’ experience and examine how changes in technology and the products offered may impact on patient/practice relationships and how behavioural changes throughout the team can begin to future proof your practice.
