Presenter, Professor Lawrenson said: “Optometry Tomorrow is the premier CET event of the optometry calendar so I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to take part in this important debate, which will be informed by the current evidence-base on lid hygiene. The efficacy and safety of baby shampoo will form the basis of our debate so I will look forward to it and the lively discussion that is sure to follow.”
