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.

ALCON PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

From presbyopia to astigmatism and communication to demonstration, we have developed sessions to explore useful topics. 

Discover more about our different educational programmes and formats below. 

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 Programme 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. Office of National Statistics (ONS) figures estimate the growth rate of people over 45 is double that of under 45 and by 2020 this will equate to an additional 7 presbyopic patients walking into the average UK practice each month. 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 for both Optometrists and Contact Lens Opticians. 5 CET points are on offer for Dispensing Opticians.

ALCON DRY EYE DAY 

Dry eye disease is one of the common reasons a patient visits an eye care practitioner. The population of the UK is both increasing and ageing, with Office of National Statistics data showing 50% of the population are now over 40. With the prevalence of both aqueous-deficient and evaporative dry eye becoming more prominent with age, it is vital we are prepared in practice for diagnosis and management.

This one day course exploring dry eye disease is held at the Alcon Experience Academy, our state-of-the-art educational facility 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.
