A first of its kind course in optical dispensing has been introduced by LVPEI in collaboration with Brien Holden Vision Institute, Australia. The objective of this course is to help the optometrists further upgrade and enhance their optical dispensing skills and thus raise the standards of patient care. The first batch commenced in the month of February through online classes and later concluded with a three-day hands-on training session on 12 May 2019. The training had the right mix of practical and theoretical sessions, along with sessions on client-centric behaviour and soft skills. 11 Optometrists benefited from this training.
