Optical Express has launched a set of awards that recognise how eye care practitioners are working to reduce their environmental impact.

The Eyes on the World Environmental Awards will highlight how ophthalmologists, optometrists, dispensing opticians, practices and universities in the UK have made changes to how they practise.

David Moulsdale, founder and CEO of Optical Express, said: ‘Eye care professionals across the globe are doing inspirational work for their patients and our planet. Whether you’re cleaning beaches, cutting down on single use plastic waste, or going the extra mile to educate your patients on the environmental impact of vision correction solutions and eye care treatments, Optical Express wants to recognise and support your efforts.’

Details on how to enter will be announced by the multiple in the spring, with the awards night taking place during the 2020 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in November.
