Lobbying in the community

Optometry Scotland member and previous past-chair of Optometry Scotland welcomed MSP Phillipa Whitford to Bonellie Opticians in Stewarton and discussed the first port of call for all eye related issues being the optometrist.

David discussed with Phillipa the importance of regular eye examinations, the need to raise awareness for eye health in Scotland and the utilisation of the NHS funded eye examination.

Since their meeting, MSP Philipa Whitford has been interested in the ongoing work of Optometry Scotland and we hope to get the opportunity to meet again.
