Welcome to the Optician Awards 2024

Recognising and rewarding excellence is at the heart of the Optician Awards and every year our readers surprise and delight our judging panels with their innovation and drive.

Most heartening is that each year new names come forward to put their practices, products and professional staff in the frame. As we interview our winners each year the same comment crops up: “I didn’t think people like us won an Optician Award”. The great news is; they do. The Optician Awards are judged by panels of experts who are passionate about the profession and are dedicated to driving eye care on.

They understand how optical practice works so they can filter our clever marketing and PR speak to identify those practices serving their patients day in and day out.

The line up of categories this year includes many of the perennial favourites covering all practices types, professionals roles, products and specialisms. Whether fashion is your bag, technology turns you on or clinical excellence is your thing there is a category for you. The Optician Awards are free to enter and all you need to do is match up your skills with the criteria of your chosen category.

Optician is planning a massive party in London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane this November 22 not just to present the trophies but to get the whole of the profession together. Trophies will be handed out on the night but there is so much more to the Optician Awards. It’s an evening for the whole of optics to come together and celebrate innovation, excellence and passion for the profession.

Please look through this website to see which categories you may want to enter, plan your entry and put November 22 in your diary.
