Presenting on eye health

Our members are often asked to present on eye healthcare and the work of optometrists to various community groups, schools and colleges. We have a number of resources that you can use when presenting to audiences of all ages.

PowerPoint presentation 

We've developed a PowerPoint presentation, with accompanying notes, to save you time and effort in your preparations. It's regularly updated - in line with changes within the sector and feedback from our members. You can use as few or as many slides as you like, change the order and add your own - quickly and easily. 

Members can download the presentation below: 


Borrow our plastic model of the eye 

If you'd like something a bit more 'hands on' why not borrow our deconstructible model eye? It's free for members to borrow. To request a loan, please contact Neil Handley on 020 7766 4353 or email
