Ophthalmic lens tech company IOT has collaborated with the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) College to open the IOT Dispensing Suite for college students next term.

This included educational materials on areas such as night myopia, progressive designs, and a lens display, and supports ABDO College together with Caledonian Optical, Optimum RX Lens Specialists and Norville, to help drive knowledge and learning and more innovations in the industry, said IOT.

Dr Robert Cubbidge, principal at ABDO College, added: 'It was with great pleasure that we welcomed IOT and their partners to ABDO College. The high quality teaching materials they have provided will ensure that our students are able to understand the latest technological advances being made in the ophthalmic lens industry and how they can benefit patients.'
