Testimonials

In my job I mainly carry out eye exams and contact lenses fittings but I'm always reading up on the latest clinical treatments. I knew a bit about corneal cross linking before the event but now I feel better informed and believe it would benefit some of my patients. I would also be confident about referring patients to Optical Express.
- Wazeem, optometrist at an independent practice in Edinburgh

Testimonials

I was impressed with the presentation, the state of the art clinic and the modern technology. I also enjoyed the peer review as it gave me a chance to increase my knowledge on certain eye conditions.

I've been off work for a while and enjoyed the chance to learn about how things have changed and the new technology that is available. The information we were given is much more related to where optics is going.
