ABOUT SLK

The SLK Optometry Foundation (SLKOF), a non-governmental organisation dedicates itself to the promotion of the optical profession, industries and trade, and therefore the ocular health of the many people of India.

 

With the steady stream of new products and technologies entering the market and the changing scenario witnessed during the last few decades, it has become essential for members of the optical trade to keep themselves abreast of the latest developments. In keeping with its mission, the SLK Optometry Foundation aims to provide education and training to upgrade the optical industry through highly relevant curriculum that includes seminars, symposiums, workshops, live demonstrations and trainings, conducted in different locations across India at periodic intervals. Indeed, SLK works hard to keep India’s dispensing opticians and optometrists on the cutting edge of the industry and on par with the latest innovations.

 

SLK CEPs (Continuing Education Programmes) are considered to be India’s best means by which to update oneself on the changes and developments that are ever taking place in the optical world. The SLK Programmes have been acclaimed as highly relevant and much-needed by several attending delegates. The overwhelming positive feedback and subsequent success of these educational initiatives is what keeps us going today.

TOPICAL TOPICS

The curriculum is attributed to be most comprehensive, vital and well delivered and our programme is often referred to as a rare gem in that it is accessible and easy to understand, free of confusing technical terms and full of hands-on workshops. In fact in the words of one such delegate who had attended the programme, it is “so simple to understand yet too intense to miss!”
