GOC suspends Cheltenham based optometrist
The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend Ariana Faderani, an optometrist based in Cheltenham, from its register for twelve months.
A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found her fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to her falsifying sight test records to inflate her sales figures and related bonus and deceiving her employer by using study days for recreational travel.
Ms Faderani has until 29 April 2021 to appeal her suspension.
