Optometry Wales Roadshow – Cardiff

Date: Wednesday 27 June 2018 Location: Cardiff School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Maindy Road, Cardiff


An evening CET session to discuss with the profession and invited stakeholders and working partners what the future in Wales looks like as technology marches on and business models have to adapt to that change and with the high street less in competition with other practices and more engaged in a battle with increasing internet sales and auto refraction we ask what the future in Wales will and should look like with policy makers, the profession and our regulator.

Join us as we explore these and other topics such as the workforce in Wales and how Optometry Wales can help you navigate your way through these changes.  Help us shape policy in Wales and define what being an Optometrist or a Dispensing Optician really means now.
