The Foresight Project
The ‘Foresight Project’ which the Central Fund financed in collaboration with the Optical Confederation and College of Optometrists. This was designed to look at the impact of future technology on the optical sector; what is likely to come to market and be adopted and how it will impact professionals, the public and manufacturers. The effects on business models, education and regulation will be assessed. Outcome recommendations will allow the profession to be proactive rather than reactive to future events.
