Webinars for optical professionals

We offer webinars for all optical professionals to expand their knowledge of how brain tumours affect vision and how optical professionals are vital in the early detection of brain tumours.

Webinars are free and include the opportunity to ask questions. By sharing your name and GOC number with us, you can be accredited CET points from the GOC for attending one of out webinars. 

Our webinars are held using the Zoom application, which is free to download. Help on how to download and use Zoom can be found here.

If you have any questions, or would like to present your data at one of our future webinars please contact our Optical Engagement Manager at lorcan.butler@thebraintumourcharity.org.

I’ve had several delegates thanking the EYLOC for such an excellent and relevant lecture, slick and well presented. I have invited my optometrist contacts many times with offers of lectures, and this one has attracted the largest audience by far. I would have no hesitation in recommending this lecture to other LOCs.
