The Mechanics of Optometry

The wonderful world of optometry

Explore the weird and wonderful world of optometry through the decades, in this exhibition of items from The College of Optometrists collection. View the tools of the trade from rules and face measures, to practice eyes and models, to glass eyes and lenses. Curated in collaboration with Neil Handley, Curator of the British Optical Association Museum at The College of Optometrists.

To complement this exhibition, the University of Sunderland’s Art and Design Foundation and Glass and Ceramics students will create an exhibition considering connections between art and the human eye.
