The Optician Awards 2017


On 1st April 2017, the Optician Awards took place in Birmingham’s prestigious Hilton Metropole where opticians at the top of their field were recognised for their achievements. With 16 category awards available the competition was high.

The Optician magazine is a leading independent UK journal produced weekly for eye care professionals and since 1891 it has been providing current news, views and analysis on the different areas of the optical business and profession.

Optician is a provider of Continuing Education and Training for those in the eye care profession and is currently the only independent provider of distance learning interactive CET points.

The optician Awards have been running for over 20 years and those who attended the event had the opportunity to network with 500 fellow opticians.

When choosing an optician it is important to know that there are many providers of excellent optical care throughout the UK and knowing that we have such a vast choice of provider when it comes to looking after our eyes is certainly a reassuring fact. With so many different aspects of eye care to consider, it is worth finding a practice that specialises in the field that is relevant.

Within the Medigest business directory we have a section for professional opticians and we hope that this will enable you to find a specialist quickly and easily.
