Optuitions was founded in 2013 and is led by Dr Navneet Gupta. Our primary aim is to offer training courses to eye care professionals in order to develop your skills and make you a better practitioner. We offer courses that are primarily aimed at pre-registration optometrists but also refraction skills for refraction certificate examinations. We can also offer bespoke courses tailored to your specific needs and we welcome enquiries to see if we might be able to help, subject to our remit.
Navneet is an Independent Prescribing Optometrist with varied experience in optometric practices, ranging from independents, High Street multiple chains, refractive surgery consultations, and hospital clinics. He is experienced in assessing pre-registration optometrists, judging trainee ability and understanding against General Optical Council (GOC) competencies. He is vastly experienced in OSCE training for pre-registration optometrists and Minor Eye Conditions Schemes (MECS). He is an optometrist member of the GOC’s Education Visitor Panel, providing consultancy services for the accreditation of university optometry-related programmes.
