Welcome from the Director of Education

Visionary education for clinical ophthalmic leaders

We engage ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists, vision scientists and other professionals interested in the eye care sector to think about real-world practices that are making a difference to patients.

Through our cutting-edge short courses and programmes, we ensure that you not only get the latest thinking in ophthalmic practice and education but can transform these insights into impact in your organisation. Participants consistently rate our courses as outstanding and delegates value being trained and taught by world-renowned faculty, scientists, consultants and clinicians.

World-renowned faculty

Our courses are designed and delivered by world-renowned faculty who are leaders in ophthalmology. UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) and Moorfields Eye Hospital (MEH) are world leaders in vision and eye health research. As partners, we are a defining force in research that makes a difference to the world. Our courses collectively pull in the knowledge of hundreds of world-renowned experts in global vision and eye health care. Through our courses, we take the knowledge we create through our research and translate it into education and training for professionals who are natural creators and problem solvers.
