Optometry in Practice (OiP)

About OiP

Optometry in Practice (OiP) is the College’s quarterly CPD/CET journal. In every edition you will find articles highlighting the latest research, analysis and opinion on a whole range of topics in optometry.  

The most recent OiP articles includes a set of multiple choice questions (MCQs) at the end to check your understanding and earn one non-interactive CET point.  

If you are an optometrist not based in the UK, please visit the Optometry in Practice website for articles and quizzes. 

Before you start, find out more about how Optometry in Practice works. We also have a quick guide to CET
