Optimum Coatings has sponsored a new library at the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) College, which will showcase new lens displays.

The Optimum Rx Lens Specialists Library will educate students on options for the most complex prescriptions in the UK, with displays of coatings and specialist tints, as well as a digital screen with educational videos.

Optimum Rx Lens Specialists sales director, Mark Marland, said: ‘The displays will be in the format of various literature packs that students can take away and keep for reference. Complex lens displays show the various lenses that can be produced at Optimum, concentrating on the weird and wonderful in uncut form and glazed specials, such as Franklin splits.’

The company said that the sponsorship was motivated by feedback from students who visited during their ABDO Case 51 laboratory tours.
