Our Seeing Beyond the Eyes roadshow has been an overwhelming success and by the end of January, over 2,200 eyecare professionals will have attended one of our CET workshops and forged valuable connections with sight loss support services and charities. We have had a 96% positive feedback rating on the GOC CET portal.
Thanks to the support of Thomas Pocklington Trust, we have launched a free resource pack for professionals which enables opticians to easily locate and refer patients to support services.
It includes details on local sensory impairment teams, sight loss charities, eye clinic liaison officers (ECLOs), vision assessment services and habilitation workers. National support services are also listed, along with condition specific charities and resources for professionals.
Suppliers of low vision aids and daily living solutions are also included to help readers locate specialised assistive technology and equipment. The free pack has been well received and is available in hard copy or digital formats.
