Synapse Academy – Past Issues

We share the first issue of every cycle at no charge. If you are not a current Synapse Academy member and want to submit your answers for the current year’s article, please do so via email to for manual processing. Registered Synapse Academy members, please log in at the portal (the yellow block at the top, right) and answer the questions online for immediate assessment and access to your certificates.

Our CPD articles are collated by South African optometrists just like you. Our team of experts understand, and write for the local clinical and legislative environment. As academics and clinicians, we cover practical topics and refer to current, international research to support, but there’s no copying and pasting of foreign content or clinical protocols that are neither possible, nor applicable, in our own settings.
