Alsalama College of Optometry

We are inviting 1,200 young optometrists across the nation to be a part of this big event in South India. They will witness seminars by eminent speakers, workshops on contact lens, dispensing, vision therapy and low vision. We have also kept a very big exhibition on optometry instruments and practicals where hands on training can be possible. Many college students who don’t have these set up will be lucky to experience this. We have also have academic games like quizzes and cultural events like singing, dancing and a musical night. It is a two-day event on behalf of World Optometry Day. On the second day there will be an open forum (interaction between speakers and students), vote of thanks, prizes and certificate distributions.
