Being aware of the latest developments in the optical profession is vital for the future of your practice

Being fully informed about the issues affecting your optician practice is essential if you are to succeed.

Knowing the new developments - from equipment and ophthalmic knowledge to legislation - is vital if you are to be prepared and ready to profit from them. Similarly, knowing the challenges that other members of the profession have faced or are facing can be vital to avoid them.

You need a constant flow of information if you are to adopt best practices and benefit from them, and to adopt the solutions that have helped other professionals like yourself drive their practices, turnover and profitability.

Fortunately, the sector is served by a number of media partners providing news, insight and analysis to keep readers informed of the latest developments in health and optical science and care in the UK.

Both online and print media are available. They allow readers to keep abreast of the news and other content - and offer the opportunity to communicate, advertise and respond to content to support your business objectives.

Having access to the information you need is vital for the future of your practice.

What are the key areas where you need the specialist optician media to help you?


The latest developments - the latest news - from suppliers, researchers and business owners can only be found in the print and online pages of the specialist opticians media. Get opinions that count towards shaping your plans - hear about the successes and the disasters that have affected other practices - be forewarned about new regulations and legislation.

There is always new information that you need to know - and which you simply can't let pass you buy.


Industry reps are always active - but the best way to ensure that you know about the latest developments in the optical industry is to see them first in the specialist media. Look out for the latest frame collections - and especially those of the up and coming new designers.

Watch out for the new ideas and technology in lenses, and equipment.

If you are determined to keep your business moving forward, and having the latest products and diagnostic techniques to offer your customers, you need to ensure that you see them all in the specialist media.

Clinical techniques

Optical clinical research is making new diagnostic techniques and new treatments possible. Your practice has a duty of care to your customers - you need to know about these new possibilities as soon as they are made available. Referring a patient for the most appropriate care could save their sight.

Putting your career opportunities where they will be seen by the largest number of people can improve the quality as well as the quantity of the response your job advertisements enjoy.
