  • Guide for CET authorsOpen

    Dispensing Optics is the professional journal of the Association of British Dispensing Opticians and is published monthly.

    The principle aim of our CET articles is to provide continuing education for dispensing opticians in practice. Therefore articles must include implications and applications of theory to practise. They also include multiple-choice questions (MCQs), which may be completed and returned to gain CET credits.

    Since a major relaunch in January 2015, Dispensing Optics has successfully maintained the quality of the journal to ensure it remains essential reading for the profession and industry. As a result, the journal continues to attract new advertisers each year, keen to ensure they are reaching the right audience, i.e. those decision makers in practice who dispense and prescribe their products on a daily basis.

    With an average ABDO Board certified circulation of 9,201 copies per month (January-October 2016), Dispensing Optics reaches a vast audience of grassroots ABDO members – as well as their professional colleagues in the associated fields of optometry and ophthalmology, and in industry too.
