World Orthoptic Day 2021
World Orthoptic Day 2021 was a fantastic success once again. Orthoptists around the world took to social media to promote the profession and share what they’ve been doing to celebrate.
In particular the IOA’s Orthoptic Selfie competition and the brand new Orthoptic Tetris Challenge caught peoples’ imaginations, with some fantastic entries coming in from all around the world.
Here’s a few of our favourites:
- Incredible use of prisms at Alder Hey
- This entry for the Tetris Challenge from Royal Stoke shows real commitment!
- East Sussex had a number of great posts, but we liked their Tetris challenge entry
- There were a number of orthoptists making good use of their PPE – check out this decorated visor.
We received support form across healthcare, including professional bodies, CAHPOs, other AHPs and, via the new Northern Ireland Orthoptics Twitter account, a message from the Minister of Health.
We’re all hoping that this time next year, we will be able to have a lot more happening in person, but it was extremely positive to see a number of you take to social media for the very first time this week.
