It shares an extensive range of high-quality clinical, business and technology articles, professional and management advice, and insights into the latest frames, lenses, styles and fashions. Optician also provides comprehensive CET support - including interactive modules - covering all practical skills laid down by the GOC, through a unique and unrivalled distance-learning platform. 

Subscribing will enable you to:

  • Achieve your full three-year cycle CET requirement in all competencies
  • Receive essential guidance into managing a busy optical practice
  • Enhance your knowledge and understanding of key clinical topics
  • Always stay ahead of what your customers want

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?
