Winner of Plymouth University Clinical Optometry Prize Announced


The winner of this year’s First Year Clinical Optometry Prize at Plymouth University is Geoffrey Filmore. Geoffrey achieved the highest overall mark in the First Year Clinical Optometry Skills module and was delighted to receive an ophthalmoscope and retinoscope set donated by Keeler.

“The Clinical Optometry Skills module is where our first year students start to hone and develop the key clinical skills they will take forward into their professional careers as optometrists,” said Dr Catriona Hamer, Lecturer in Optometry at the University.

“Geoffrey was delighted to receive the prize for the highest mark in this module and will no doubt be using the Keeler equipment for many years to come!

“We approached Keeler back in 2014, the first year these prizes were awarded, to see if they would sponsor the prize for us and they happily agreed. The company has now provided a prize for the last four years. The ophthalmoscope and retinoscope set always goes down exceedingly well with the students and we are very grateful for Keeler’s support,” concluded Catriona.

“We’re always happy to support universities and students in this way,” added Laura Haverley, Keeler’s Sales and Marketing Manager. “Cultivating a close relationship with the UK’s optometry schools also helps us understand their needs and the needs of their students.”
