Test your dispensing skills on the exhibition floor

The ACOD Focimetry Challenge, involves neutralising (reading) the powers of one complete pair of spectacles on a manual, telescopic focimeter. The challenger is asked to record the powers and all relevant details as accurately as possible on their entry sheet.


For the more confident amongst our practitioners there is the Optimed Best Spectacle Maker Challenge. The first test involves using a glass cutter, shanking plier and hand edger to fit a lens to a metal frame in less than 30 minutes. For challenge 2, using the edger and a drill create the perfect fit in a rimless frame. Easy if you know how! All proceeds to support charity Equal Health.
