FMO welcomes three new members


As FMO gears up for Optrafair 20/20 exhibition and conference, three new members have been announced and five more have applied for membership.

Optrafair 20/20, which runs between 4 and 6 April at the NEC, where new members will be exhibiting. Cerium Visual Technologies will be demonstrating the Intuitive Colorimeter Curve, the innovative digital instrument which is revolutionising Colorimetry assessment. Claire Millar, Director of Technical Services, said: ‘We look forward to having genuine sales conversations with real decision makers at Optrafair 20/20. We joined FMO to allow us to attend the meetings they organise throughout the year, keep up to date with commercial regulatory developments and generally support the optical industry.’

Occuity is set to change the field of ocular measurement, specialising in the research, design and production of non-contacting optical instruments. The first device in their range, a non-contacting pachymeter, will be on their stand at Optrafair 20/20. CEO Dan Daly said: ‘Optrafair 20/20 provides the ideal opportunity to exhibit our first device to the optical industry. Further devices based on the patented Occuity technology are currently in development and will provide upgrades to the pachymeter and some very exciting devices designed to screen for diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.’

Hot off the press: Spec-Care have just joined FMO. Since 1985 Spec-Care has been providing technical support to the optical trade. The company director, Rob Barrow, is himself a qualified Dispensing Optician and SMC qualified technician. These qualifications and experience have helped the company develop a partnership approach with their customers and often work on bespoke designs and fittings commissioned by leading UK paediatric clinics.

FMO hopes to announce more new members in the run up to Optrafair 20/20, which runs from 4 to 6 April at the NEC.
