The School of Optometry and Vision Science (SOVS) will be hosting their inaugural School of Optometry and Vision Science Conference in July 2017.

The conference will provide practising clinicians, educators, vision scientists and students the opportunity for hands-on interactive workshops, as well as short scientific presentations, Grand Round sessions and clinical seminars. Our aim is to create an excellent education programme delivered by nationally and internationally recognized clinicians and researchers with engaging social events for networking with friends and colleagues.
