Optical Alliance signs on for SILMO Sydney 2017

We are happy to announce that Optical Alliance will be attending SILMO Sydney in 2017.  The event is taking place at the new Sydney International Convention Centre (located in Darling Harbour) beginning on Thursday March 9 until Saturday 11. Optometry NSW is running ‘Super Sunday’ on Sunday 12th to coincide with the event.

Alongside CR Surfacing Laboratories, we are very excited to be apart of the optical fair and hope to see many familiar faces during the course of the weekend!

SA Blue Sky Congress Registration Now Open

Flood, fire and pestilence on the flat (two consecutive conference venues cancelling) have caused SA Blue Sky Congress 2016 to run for the hills (the Adelaide Hills) in 2016! But there is most definitely a silver lining to even a Roman Tragedy such as this – what a splendiferous amphitheatre we have found for your enjoyment and entertainment, guaranteed to take the relaxed style of our crazy boutique conference to a whole new level! (See location for more details)

And pestilence aside, the wheels have not fallen off our trusty chariot and it’s ‘business as usual’ on the education front, promising a proverbial orgy of diverse, quality education for both optometrists (40 CPD points including 25+ relevant to Ocular Therapeutics) and optical dispensers (a choice of two streams to suit your experience and interests), intermingled with toga-clad entertainment and frivolity amongst the grape vines.

REGISTRATIONS are now open and you can use your Optical Alliance points to cover the cost! Head to http://www.optometry.org.au/sa/cpd-events/sa-blue-sky-congress/

A position is available for an optometrist to join the Eyecare Eyewear team and provide full scope independent optometry services to the friendly people of the Southern Downs. Our requirements are simple; we need help with eye testing. Everything else negotiable: position/partnership or part-time/full time.  

An interest, or at least a healthy respect for behavioural optometry, specialty contact lens fitting (orthoK & sclerals) and therapeutic prescribing would be be great. 

Warwick is only 155km from Brisbane CBD - easily commutable. Don't have a car, No problem! We even have a VW Passat 3CC ready to use.
