The Annual Meeting this year will present a series of discussions on all aspects of behavioural optometry practice, from starting out through to advanced VT techniques.

The day has been designed to be of use to all our members and will be led by BABO members. During the morning John Stevenson and Emma Drewery will talk about how they came to be involved and how they felt behavioural optometry was the natural progression to their practice. Following this Lesley Arkin and Sophie Rose will discuss how to introduce VT to your practice, both with and without a therapist.

During the afternoon, Caroline Hurst will talk through ‘Developing your model of vision’ and expanding your behavioural Optometry thinking.

Owen Leigh and John Stevenson will run a workshop on ‘Loading VT for different populations’. This last session will be interactive.
