Welcome to Coventry & Warwickshire LOC website

Coventry and Warwickshire Local Optical Committee is the official statutory body representing Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians within the area. The LOC works closely with local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG’s) to create community eye care services which provide accessibility for patients, supports the NHS, and promotes the skill set of eyecare professionals within Coventry and Warwickshire.

This website has been developed to be a source of up to date advice for local eye care professionals, and to allow easy access to useful documents, information, and guidelines.  We will also share upcoming news and events regularly that is specifically related to optics in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Our next LOC meeting is on 12th of September 2024.
