Meet the Plymouth University Clinical Optometry Prize winner
The winner of this year’s First Year Clinical Optometry Prize at Plymouth University is Geoffrey Filmore. He achieved the highest overall mark in the First Year Clinical Optometry Skills module and was delighted to receive an ophthalmoscope and retinoscope set donated by Keeler.
“The Clinical Optometry Skills module is where our first-year students start to hone and develop the key clinical skills they will take forward into their professional careers as optometrists,” says Dr Catriona Hamer, Lecturer in Optometry at the University.
“Geoffrey was delighted to receive the prize for the highest mark in this module and will no doubt use the Keeler equipment for many years to come.
“We approached Keeler back in 2014, the first year these prizes were awarded, to see if they would sponsor the prize for us and they happily agreed. The company has now provided a prize for the past four years. The ophthalmoscope and retinoscope set always goes down exceedingly well with the students and we are very grateful for Keeler’s support,” says Catriona.
“We’re always happy to support universities and students in this way,” adds Laura Haverley, Keeler’s Sales and Marketing Manager. “Cultivating a close relationship with the UK’s optometry schools also helps us understand their needs and the needs of their students.”
