A Career with a View

Our workshops will have activities suitable for all ages allowing visitors to discover a career in optometry or audiology and start seeing things differently!

Younger students will learn about the anatomy of the eye, take part in a fun activity to design and create their own personalised pair of specs and have the chance to design their own flip book. They'll learn more about sight loss by trying on sim specs, enabling them to experience the impact of sight loss.
