Optician

Optician is the weekly, independent magazine for the entire optical profession, publishing the latest news, analysis and advice. Every issue contains an extensive clinical section – focusing on all areas of eye care, management articles with market analysis and business support, and coverage of the latest frames, lenses and technology.

The jewel in our crown is our unique and unrivalled CET platform. It includes interactive modules, and enables all GOC-registered practitioners to achieve their full cycle CET requirement in all competencies. This, combined with the magazine, makes Optician your essential source of career-long professional support.

  • Relevant - content is selected for its relevance, addressing key issues for practitioners
  • Interactive - nowhere else offers such extensive support for both optometry and dispensing optics
  • Authoritative - specialist articles are commissioned from leading figures in practice and academia

Did you know?

Your subscription could be tax deductible. As CET is a condition of continued registration, self-employed professionals and practice owners are able to claim tax relief on a subscription to Optician, by claiming the cost as an expense against their income.

(PAYE employees would not be able to claim tax relief, though a practice can subscribe on their behalf, subtracting the expense from the practice's profits.)

Also, qualified optometrists qualify for the NHS Grant for CET. Why not use your grant to pay for an Optician subscription, and access our CET platform?
