ALCON® EDUCATION

As part of our mission we have a responsibility to provide innovative products that enhance quality of life by helping people see better. Alcon also extends this responsibility to the way in which we support eye care practitioners and their support teams.

THE ALCON SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME

Founded in 2014 the Alcon Scholarship is an innovative programme of education providing a unique opportunity for newly qualified Optometrists to explore the world of Optometry.


Working with first class educators the Alcon Scholarship enables its Scholars to widen their skill set clinically, professionally, commercially and personally.

ALCON PRESBYOPIA EDUCATION DAY 

The UK population is both increasing and aging. Using Office of National Statistics (ONS) 2015 data we can calculate that by only 2018 there will be an estimated additional 19 presbyopic patients, each month, walking into the average UK practice. Help them find the right vision care option for their needs.


This one day course exploring presbyopia is held at our state-of-the-art educational facility the Alcon Academy in Surrey and offers 8 CET points.

ALCON MANAGING ASTIGMATISM EDUCATION DAY 

Coming soon!


This one day course investigates astigmatism and how we can effectively manage it in practice with contact lenses. We will also examine how astigmatism may affect patients being referred for cataract surgery. The course is held at our state-of-the-art educational facility the Alcon Academy in Surrey. 

ALCON GROßWALLSTADT EDUCATION MEETINGS 

We are proud to be able to share the experience of Groβwallstadt, the home and manufacturing heart of DAILIES® family of contact lenses, and the hub from which we distribute all of our contact lenses to customers across Europe.  This event promises to be highly interesting and educational, as well as a good opportunity to network with fellow delegates. We are also pleased to be able to offer 4 CET points.
