Focus on OCT at the NRC

Last week a group of dispensing opticians and allied eyecare professionals took part in the first of a new series of workshops, Focus on OCT from the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO).

The face to face practical event built upon the learning from a webinar and allowed practitioners to gain hands on experience with a range of OCT equipment. Lectures were written & delivered by Jason Higginbotham of FYEye who is an expert in this field, and it was a great opportunity for attendees to both refresh and expand their clinical knowledge.

Event organiser Max Halford, clinical lead for ABDo says, “The  recent Focus on OCT practical training day  was one of many events where we have utilised the National Resource Centre in Birmingham. Again the support of Mat, Molly and Rebecca was crucial in making the event run smoothly. The support they offered to both delegates and the teams demonstrating equipment at the event was second to none and their experience in planning and delivery ensured that we could focus on the content knowing that all the organisational elements were taken care of. A huge thanks to all of the team.”
