Masterclass Optometry Organizes Knowledge Fest 4 in Pune

Knowledge Fest 2022 is an educational initiative that promises to be both an educative and an enjoyable experience. The Fest is open to all eye care practitioners, those who would like to learn how to recommend the right eyeglasses, contact lenses and how to grow their practice.
