ABDO launches new member benefit

News posted: 07/01/2019

The Association of British Dispensing Opticians is offering all members a new benefit in 2019, with access to 25 key British Standards relating to frames, lenses and contact lenses via the members’ portal.

ABDO Head of CET Alex Webster says, “Although not something required in everyday dispensing practice, there are occasions when it is necessary to consult a British Standard to ensure we are doing the best for our customers. ABDO members now have free-of-charge, online-view access to those standards that are relevant to our varied scope of practice including: ophthalmic dispensing, personal eye-protection, low vision, contact lenses and glazing. This valuable resource will ensure both qualified and student members can be certain that the products and services they are supplying are conforming to the required standards.”

To access the standards, members need to login to the members’ area and visit the ‘Members benefits and services’ page.
