News posted: 19/10/2018

ABDO College Bookshop will be making its debut at 100% Optical in 2019 with far more than just books. Bookshop manager Justin Hall says, “I will be bringing a full range of optical titles covering Dispensing, Anatomy, Contact Lenses and Low Vision and also various Rules and Gauges essential for study and practice.”

If you are concerned about carrying your purchases round the show, don’t worry. Justin says, “We run an event discount of free postage on all orders. Our prices are already some of the lowest in the country and coupled with the free postage this is an offer not to miss!” You can place your order at the show, knowing that your books, rules and gauges will be processed to the address of your choice by 1st Class Royal Mail or by Parcelforce on a 24hr service.

Purchases can be made via a mobile card terminal at the show so Visa or MasterCard transaction will be available. Cash and cheques are also accepted.

Alongside this. ABDO College will be launching a new look prospectus with the full details of all ABDO College courses, from Optical Support through to DO/CLO, in one place for the first time. Steve Hertz, Assistant Head of Operational Services at ABDO College says, “This will also be the first year with a dedicated area for ABDO College so we’re looking forward to be really easy to find for those with enquiries and also for those colleagues, old and new, to pop along for a catch up on all things Godmersham.”

In another first, students on ABDO College’s BSc (Hons) Vision Science will be sharing research posters on their practice based research projects. The researchers will be there at set times to answer questions and talk about what they have done.
