Today marks World Optometry Day which is also the official kickoff to World Optometry Week. The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) marks this day as an opportunity to draw the spotlight on a key eye care profession and create awareness about optometry and its practices around the world. In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to recognize all of the ways the profession of optometry helps patients maintain good vision. Let’s celebrate this week and continue to raise awareness on the importance of family vision care and overall eye health.
Optos is dedicated to enabling eye care professionals across the globe to provide the quality eye exams necessary for good vision. Starting today, and all week, Optos will be highlighting Optometrists worldwide who embrace utilizing optomap® ultra-widefield retinal imaging for their patients.
With over 16,000 devices installed across the globe, there are countless stories to be told regarding how optomap has saved sight and saved lives in all eye care settings. Tell us your story. Optos wishes all optometric eye care professionals a happy, healthy, and safe World Optometry Week. #TellUsYourStory
