ABDO Theatre

An extremely popular feature, the ABDO Theatre will return in 2018 to deliver CET-approved lectures, discussion workshops and peer review sessions. CET points will be available during sessions approved for both dispensing opticians and optometrists.

The ABDO CET lectures will be free to attend and admission will be on a first come, first served basis – with lectures approved for one CET point each and discussion workshops offering three CET points each.

Free to attend, the ABDO Theatre lecture programme will be available shortly. In the meantime, to give you an indication of the topics and speakers, please see the ABDO 2017 programme below.
