    ABDO will conduct three discussion workshops, repeated each day.

    ABDO’s CET will range across the competencies for dispensing opticians, CLOs and optometrists, highlighting the need to always provide excellent patient care via practice scenario discussions and looking to the future in manufacturing technology and ophthalmic lens production.

    Nick Walsh will be presenting ‘Lens manufacture and design – now or next?’, in which delegates will learn about new manufacturing techniques utilising methods, such as 3D printing, and how these differ significantly from conventional and freeform lens production. DOs will gain more technical knowledge to underpin their dispensing of innovative lens designs, and learn appropriate applications with full consideration of the patient’s lifestyle.

    Angela McNamee and Keith Cavaye in ‘All in a Day’s work’ will be looking at tricky contact lens-related situations in practice, giving guidance for both DOs and CLOs and teaching problem-solving skills.

    Peter Black’s discussions will remind delegates of their super-skills as qualified practitioners, particularly in their regulated areas of practice. Entitled ‘Once in a lifetime, or once in a week – rare cases from optical practice’ it will cover the referral of sight threatening emergencies, less urgent but potentially life threatening conditions as well as those highly memorable complex dispensing situations we occasionally find ourselves in – patients with very high powered lenses, paediatric complex lens dispensing etc. Dispensing opticians and CLOs in need of the difficult-to-get competencies should book to attend as well as anyone wishing to learn about the rare, the weird and the wonderful from their fellows.
