Advisory position at the College of Optometrists

Posted on 07th May 2013

Ian has been appointed to the College of Optometrist’s Clinical Management Guideline advisory board.

The College of Optometrists has gathered together a range of experts in therapeutics (treatment of eye disease with medication) to help them redraft and improve their clinical management guidelines. These are bullet point summary sheets advising optometrists on how and when to treat various eye conditions and are a valuable resource to optometrists at the coal face in a busy clinic.

Ian was picked to bring some front line experience to the group and advise on where these guidelines can be streamlined and enhanced to make them more useful in daily therapeutic practice.

Ian and Gillian are amongst a small group of fully qualified therapeutic optometrists in the UK making  Cameron Optometry perhaps the only practice with more than one such qualified practitioner in the country.
