    Keeler welcomes optometry students to Windsor headquarters

    Ophthalmic instrument manufacturer Keeler has recently hosted undergraduate optometry students at its UK headquarters in Windsor, Berkshire. Visitors included students from the University of Bradford, Anglia Ruskin University and Aston University.

    The students were taken on an in-depth tour of the factory, which has been located in Windsor for over 90 years. Following an introductory talk about the company from Laura Haverley, Keeler’s UK sales and marketing manager, Jeff Landucci, business development manager, gave a lecture about the instruments manufactured by Keeler, outlining their features and benefits. Later in the day, there was a chance for the students to purchase equipment. Keeler supplies specialist kit and instrument bundles for optometry students and is keen to foster close links with undergraduates at this early stage of their careers.

    Factory tour

    The factory tour included everything from production of the lenses and mirrors that are incorporated in Keeler’s key products – slit lamps, ophthalmoscopes, retinoscopes, tonometers and otoscopes – to the assembly line of binocular indirect ophthalmoscope headset units, as well as watching the manufacture of many of the other products that Keeler provides to the optometric community. Specialists in each sector gave a short talk about their role in the production of the instruments. One of the students commented that it was ‘great to see that working at Keeler was like working for a family’.
