Workshops in Contact lenses



City, University of London has organised a 2-day event called WinC (Workshops in Contact lenses), with the aim to offer workshops to optometrists and contact lens opticians who are interested in learning more about specialised contact lenses and the anterior eye. The first event is in 2017 and will run biennially thereafter.

This year, City WinC is themed around specialised contact lenses (day 1) and dry eye (day 2). The aims of the event are to help eye care practitioners improve their investigative skills in contact lenses and to develop specialisms in contact lens fitting.

We will offer 3 workshops in the morning and 3 workshops in the afternoon. Delegates are invited to attend all workshops, which will be run by industry partners and by staff from the Division of Optometry. Additionally, there will be opportunities for networking including an exhibition on both days.
