Diary dates.

Ophthalmic antiques enthusiasts are set to descend on the College of Optometrists on May 8 for the AGM and auction of the International Ophthalmic Antiques Collectors' Club.

The event includes a chance to examine pieces from the BOA museum's world-renowned collection followed by lunch (included in the entry fee) and an auction featuring over 200 lots, presented by auctioneer Charles Miller.

Included in the items for sale is the pictured pair of late 19th/early 20th century gold octagonal eye spectacles, which once formed part of the private collection of the pioneering optometrist Henry Blackham. For more details, contact www.oicc.com.
