We Love Lasers – CPD evening

On Tuesday the 25th of August, Focus Laser Eye Centre hosted a 6pt CPD evening for optometrists with the theme We Love Lasers. With 5 talks presented by our leading Laser Surgeons, the evening was very rewarding.

Nigel Whittle of MTH Clinic says:

I’d like to thank you for a great educational experience tonight.

The venue, the practice, was transformed into an environment where I think we all felt comfortable and relaxed. That being, it provided a platform for easy understanding and information absorption from expert and dedicated surgeon specialists.

The topics covered were done so in a professional yet down-to-earth manner. I love lasers more now too!!

The catering was exceptional….. I suspect you had a hand in that yourself, so thanks there also.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Dr’s Margaret and Richard and their associates.


FOCUS hosted “OPHTHALMOLOGY UPDATE” an optometry CPD points event

This Tuesday the 21st of October, FOCUS hosted “OPHTHALMOLOGY UPDATE” an optometry CPD points evening at our award winning Kingsford practice.

It was a great night, with all of FOCUS’ ophthalmologists giving useful and informative talks.

“Just a short note to say “thank you” to everyone that made Tuesday night such a success. The hospitality was marvellous, the speeches updated us on current topics and overall the night was great. It was a fun night and it was good to catch up and tour the centre. Thank Dr Smith and Dr Kearns for their Hospitality”

 Regards, Helen Lianos
