In the run up to Optrafair 20/20 we will be announcing its new, major features first within FMO’s Insider Information before releasing the details to the press.

The first announcement is the ‘The Optrafair Lecture’, awarded on an annual basis to a prominent practitioner within optics. For Optrafair 20/20 we are  delighted to confirm that Pearse Keane has kindly accepted our invitation to present the inaugural lecture.

Pearse needs little introduction – having graduated to Master of Science and Doctor of Medicine at University College Dublin he spent four years as NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer at Moorfields Eye Hospital before becoming an NIHR Clinician Scientist at the Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London.

Pearse will be bringing us up to date on AI and its likely impact on Optometry and Ophthalmology, a key theme for the exhibition and conference. We look forward to welcoming Pearse to Optrafair 20/20 and announcing further new, exciting and engaging features over the coming weeks.
